Abstract

A maximum part of the world's energy is consumed by ventilation and air-conditioning. The process of air cooling is one of the most energy-intensive processes in the ventilation and air-conditioning. A lot of energy is consumed by traditional systems based on the compressor cycle. The compressor which contained refrigerants in circuits produced a harmful effect on environment. These factors were mainly responsible for the active development of evaporative coolers. For overcoming this difficulty the former soviet scientist Valery Maisotsenko improved evaporative cooling technology and the resulting cycle was called as Maisotsenko cycle or M-cycle. He also patented a series of devices whose working was based on the M-cycle. This study aims to improve the performance of existing indirect evaporative coolers. A new dew point indirect evaporative cooler with counter-current heat/mass exchanger was developed in this research by optimal design, proper material selection, effective experimental investigations and evaluations as well as economic, environmental, regional acceptance analysis.
