QUESTION: 29

The power required for the compressor in kw is

Solution:

Explanation : Since power is required for compressor in refrigeration is in compression cycle (1-2)

Hence, Power required = m (h2 -h1) = mo (h2 -hf)

Since for isentropic compression process.

s1 = s2 from figure. = 0.95

For entropy s = 0.95 the enthalpy h = 276.45 kJ /kg

h = h2 = 276.45 (From table)

Hence Power = 0.2(276.45 -237)

= 7.9 kW
