AbstractAs natural fluids, several hydrocarbons with excellent thermophysical properties are recognized as alternative refrigerants to chlorofluorocarbons, hydrochlorofluorocarbons and hydrofluorocarbons. In this paper, the hydrocarbons including propane, butane, isobutane and propylene as working fluids used in an organic Rankine cycle powered vapor compression refrigeration (ORC-VCR) system are analyzed and evaluated. With the overall COP and working fluid mass flow rate of per kW cooling capacity as key performance indicators, the results indicate that butane is the best refrigerant for the ORC-VCR system as the boiler exit temperature is between 60 and 90 degrees C. the condensation temperature varies from 30 to 55 degrees C and the evaporation temperature ranges from -15 to 15 degrees C. When the boiler exit temperature reaches 90 degrees C and the other input parameters are in typical values, the overall COP of the butane case reaches 0.470. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V.
