Computational parametric study on efficiency of low boiling point fluid plants under heat exchange process intensification
National research university «MPEI», Moscow, Russia
One of the main challenges for the energy industry is to improve the reliability and efficiency of heat exchange equipment in heating plants. Phase-change heat exchangers with low boiling point fluid (LBPF) are widely used in both conventional and renewable energy. The main objectives of increasing the efficiency of heat exchange equipment are to reduce the weight and dimensions, to increase the amount of heat transferred and to reduce the electricity consumption spent on pumping the heat transfer agent. These objectives are achieved by implementing various methods of heat exchange intensification in heat exchange equipment. A key aspect concerning application of various types of heat exchange intensifiers in heat exchange equipment is evaluation of possibility to increase their design efficiency. The paper presents the results of a computational parametric study of changes in efficiency of some LBPF-based plants when intensifying heat exchange processes by modifying functional surfaces of heat exchangers by laser ablation.
