The proposed solution to this dilemma is a device with two control mechanisms, as shown in Figure 8: The inner control mechanism regulates evaporator pressure, while the outer mechanism adjusts the desired pressure to regulate evaporator superheat.
The heat transfer fluid (HTF) temperatures at the inlet and outlet of evaporator and its capacity, the temperature of the heat absorbing fluid at the inlet of the condenser and its capacity were the inputs to this model.

Though, the influence of evaporator pressure on the total exergy efficiency for the cycles was partially discussed in Section 4.2.
Table 2 shows the summary of the analysis of variance of the [ET.sub.I] data for the different water heights in the evaporator. It is possible to observe that the evapotranspiration estimated by the Irrigameter was significantly affected by the increase of water height in the evaporator.
The ejector system with ECS evaporator achieved 10% power saving compared to the conventional expansion valve system.
Equation 2 defines the cooling on the air side of the evaporator:
The following are the important parameters for effective water drainage of water from the evaporator cores:
The new EWAP-CO2 evaporator, which is mainly targeted at food retailers with cold rooms, but also wholesalers and installation and service companies, is fast to install and easy to maintain thanks to Viessmann's innovative design.
Unlike other nitrogen evaporator product lines, the N-EVAPs are designed to provide maximum flexibility and individualization.
In this study, we achieved the performance improvement of an RTU by optimizing an evaporator's refrigerant circuitry using detailed air velocity data with the evolutionary algorithms optimization module ISHED (Intelligent system for heat exchanger design).
