. . . . - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - INTRODUCTION . . . . - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - The flow boiling occurs in some point of the metal tubes of every vapour generation units, such as vapour boilers, turbines, evaporators, etc.
Usually, it occurs during the starting of these systems, until the vapour pressure is reached, causing two-phase flow: liquid and vapour. In some
cases cavitation can occur.
The importance of studying the two-phase flow is due to the negative influence ofthis type offlow on the machines efficiency.

. . . - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - GENERAL DESCRIPTION . . . . - - - - - - - - - - - - - - The TFEC unit has as main component an experimental tube made of two glass concentric t ubes. In these tubes two fluids flow crosscurrent:
refrigerant, which flows by convection and in an ascendant way through the internal tube, and hot water, which flows in a descendant way through
the external tube. This unit has been designed for using SES36 refrigerant gas, free of CFC 's, compatible with the Environment.
Refrigerant circuit:
The main circuit will be where the different stages ofthetwo-phaseflow will be visualised by student. This circuit is composed of:
-Internal glass concentrictube, where the refrigerant liquid flows.
-Regulation valve forthe input flow to t he experimental tube.
-Condensing chamber, that is complemented with an absolute pressure sensor which allows to determine the presence of air in the system, a
security valve to protect it from possible over pressure. With a temperature sensor the refrigerant temperature into the tank will be
visualized. Othertemperature sensor shows the temperature of the saturated vapour in the condensing chamber.
Heating circuit:
Basically, this second circuit is composed of:
-External glass concentric tube, through which hot waterflows to transfer the hot to the internal tube fluid.
-Thermostatic bath, with a resistance of 600W. It heats the water in t he tank.
-Centrifugal pump for recirculation.
The electric power consumed by the resistance is controlled, from the computer, by PIDover the bath temperature.
The heat transfer can be valued because there are two temperature sensors in the refrigerant liquid, in the input and in the output of the concentric
tubes.
Finally the condensing chamber has a security valve. It also can be used if we wantto carry outthe refrigerant charge operation.
This Computer Controlled Unit is supplied with the EDIBON Computer Control System (SCADA), and includes: The unit self+ a Control Interface
Box + a Data Acquisition Board + Computer Control and Data Acquisition Software Packages, for controlling the process and all parameters
involved in the process.

Faults Simulation System (FSS) is a Software package that simulates
several faults in any ED I BON Co mputer Co ntrolled Unit. It is useful for Tech nical
and Vocational level.
The "FAULTS" mode consists on causing several faults in the unit normal
operation. The student must find them and solve them .
There are several kinds of faults that can be grouped in the following
sections:
Faults affecting the sensors measurement :
An incorrect calibration is applied to them.
- Non-linearity.
Faults affecting the actuators:
- Actuators canals interchange at any time during the program
execution.
- Response reduction of an actuator.
Faults in the controls execution:
- Inversion oft he performance in ON/ OFF controls.
- Reduction or increase ofthe calculated total response.
- The action of some controls is annulled.
On/offfaults:
- Several on/offfaults can be included.
