Reports Summarize Thermal Engineering Study Results from V. Vakiloroaya and Co-Researchers (Investigation of energy-efficient strategy for direct expansion air-cooled air conditioning systems)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- Current study results on Thermal Engineering have been published. According to news reporting originating from Vancouver, Canada, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "This paper addresses the energy saving significance of air-cooled direct expansion (DX) air conditioning systems using liquid pressure amplification (LPA) technology along with proposed theoretical empirical models for the system components. This method utilizes a refrigerant pump in the liquid line to allow the system operation at lower condensing pressure."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research, "An actual DX rooftop package is used for data collection. The performance of the proposed method is simulated using transient simulation software. Simulation tool was validated by comparing predicted and measured power consumption of the rooftop package."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Results show that up to 42% power savings can be obtained using this approach."
