Absorption refrigeration & heat pumps
Ionic Liquid-Refrigerant Mixture for Highly Efficient Absorption Heat Pump Systems
Recent Research activities:
Absorption heat pump (AHP) with ionic liquid (IL):
Figure 1 Background of this research: Using ILs in the AHP systems for building heating.
- · Properties estimation of NH3/ILs pairs
- · NH3/ILs pairs in single-effect AHP
- · NH3/ILs pairs in double-effect AHP
- · Absorption of NH3 by ILs
