This text provides background information, description, and analysis of four major cooling system technologies—vapor compression cooling, evaporative cooling, absorption cooling, and gas cooling. Vapor compression systems are currently the primary technology used in most standard domestic, commercial, and industrial cooling applications, as they have both performance and economic advantages over the other competing cooling systems. However, there are many other applications in which evaporative cooling, absorption cooling, or gas cooling technologies are a preferred choice. The main focus of the text is on the application of the thermal sciences to refrigeration and air conditioning systems. The goals are to familiarize the reader with cooling technology nomenclature, and provide insight into how refrigeration and air conditioning systems can be modeled and analyzed.Cooling systems are inherently complex, as the second law of thermodynamics does not allow thermal energy to be transferred directly from a lower temperature to a higher temperature, so the heat transfer is done indirectly through a thermodynamic cycle. Emphasis is placed on constructing idealized thermodynamic cycles to represent actual physical situations in cooling systems. The text also contains numerous practical examples to show how one can calculate the performance of cooling system components. By becoming familiar with the analyses presented in the examples, one can gain a feel for the the representative values of the various thermal and mechanical parameters that characterize cooling systems.

This textbook provides a concise, systematic treatment of essential theories and practical aspects of refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. It is designed for students pursuing courses in mechanical engineering both at diploma and degree level with a view to equipping them with a fundamental background necessary to understand the latest methodologies used for the design of refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. After reviewing the physical principles, the text focuses on the refrigeration cycles commonly used in air-conditioning applications in tropical climates. The subject of psychrometry for analysing the various thermodynamic processes in air conditioning is particularly dealt with in considerable detail. The practical design problems require comprehensive use of tables and charts prepared by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). This text incorporates such tables and charts so that the students are exposed to solving real-life design problems with the help of ASHRAE Tables. Finally, the book highlights the features, characteristics and selection criteria of hardware including the control equipment. It also provides the readers with the big picture in respect of the latest developments such as thermal storage air conditioning, desiccant cooling, chilled ceiling cooling, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and thermal comfort. Besides the students, the book would be immensely useful to practising engineers as a ready reference.
