Ever since human civilization has evolved, it has made continued Improvements to the various instruments used by them, resulting in the this modern era possible where humans enjoy their own inventions which includes energy consuming devices like fan, light, AC, etc. Recently we have observed the shortfall of energy generation in comparison to energy demand, especially in developing countries such as India, Pakistan, etc. In such situations, Improvement of energy efficiency in energy generation side as well as energy consumption side is highly desirable. Such efforts have led to development of LED bulbs and CFL bulbs on energy consumption side and many thermal efficiency improvement methods on the energy generation side. In this paper, an effort is made to study the effects of using Elliptical tube instead of circular tube on the working of a heat Exchanger.
