Refrigeration, Vapour Compression


This paper present a review of only five alternative refrigeration technology to replace the conventional vapour compression refrigeration technology for domestic application. Such technologies are demanded to provide energy saving and other environmental benefits. These alternative technologies are: Magnetic refrigeration, thermo acoustic refrigeration, thermoelectric refrigeration, and thermo tunneling / thermionic refrigeration and pulse tube refrigeration. The paper provides a snapshot of the future R&D needs for each technologies along with the associated hurdles. Only thermo acoustic and magnetic refrigeration technologies draw attention because recent developed in materials and prototype. And the potential efficiencies are medium to high.
