2. A simple air cooled refrigeration system is used for an aeroplane
having load of 10 TR. The atmospheric pressure and Temperature are
0.9 bar and 100 C respectively. The pressure increases to 1.013 bar due
to ramming. Temperature reduces by 500 C in the heat exchanger. The [15]
cabin is maintained at a pressure of 1.01 bar and the temperature of air
leaving is 250 C. Determine (i) Power required to run the compressor
and (ii) Coefficient of Performance of the system.
