Derived values (integrated Clausius-Clapeyron equation constants A and B, enthalpy of vaporization and atmospheric boiling points) are summarized in the Table for each cooling-heating step.
Unlike traditional air conditioning systems, which work on vapor-compression technique, evaporating cooling works on the concept of water's large enthalpy of vaporization.
evap] is the enthalpy of vaporization at the evaporator pressure, Cp,L is the specific heat of saturated liquid refrigerant at the evaporator temperature and Tc is the critical temperature of the refrigerant.
