What Factors Affect a Thermal System’s Efficiency?

Refrigeration systems do not operate at the theoretical maximum coefficient of performance. Five (5) factors cause actual thermal efficiency to be less than the theoretical maximum value: unwanted heat transfers, compressor efficiency, heat exchanger efficiency, refrigerant flow losses, and refrigerant charges.

The evaporator and condenser are the primary areas of heat transfer in the system. The refrigerant lines leading from the compressor to the condenser and on to the expansion valves are generally left uninsulated. This aids the condenser by allowing heat to be transferred away from the refrigerant on its way to the coil. This heat transfer is desirable.

Environmental Applications Training Features Engaging Multimedia

Amatrol’s peerless interactive multimedia curriculum utilizes text with voiceovers, pictures, videos, stunning 3D animations, and interactive quizzes and reviews that engage learners in theoretical knowledge and concepts. This thorough, detailed curriculum begins with the basics and advances to complex concepts. Through partnerships with key industry leaders and leading educators, Amatrol developed the right balance of knowledge to train learners to work in their chosen field. (References T7083)

HVACR | eLearning Courses

Amatrol’s Thermal training products mainly focus on industrial, commercial, and residential heating and cooling through traditional means like air conditioning, as well as topics like insulation, lighting, and ceiling fans, or through renewable energy systems like geothermal. This area also features a steam training system that covers key concepts and skills used in paper mills, power companies, and even nuclear submarines.
