##### Reference no: EM131032730

Reconsider Prob. 11-15. Using EES (or other) software, investigate the effect of evaporator pressure on the COP and the power input. Let the evaporator pressure vary from 100 to 400 kPa. Plot the COP and the power input as functions of evaporator pressure, and discuss the results.

Prob. 11-15

Consider a 300 kJ/min refrigeration system that operates on an ideal vapor-compression refrigeration cycle with refrigerant-134a as the working fluid. The refrigerant enters the compressor as saturated vapor at 140 kPa and is compressed to 800 kPa. Show the cycle on a T-s diagram with respect to saturation lines, and determine

(a) the quality of the refrigerant at the end of the throttling process,

(b) the coefficient of performance, and

(c) the power input to the compressor.
