      How to specify heat exchanger efficiency in Cycle Tempo.
      how to specify the efficiency in the case of evaporator/ condenser.

    • #4390

      You may be implying heat exchanger effectiveness (=actual heat transferred/maximum heat transfer possible)?
      As far as I know, there is no way to specify that parameter in Cycle-Tempo. One should compute the exit temperature manually using the effectiveness and input it as TOUT or whichever temperature is not known.
      In Boiler component (evaporator), we can specify the boiler efficiency.
      In Condenser, again, like in heat exchanger, it is not possible to specify the effectiveness.

      Hi! Good question…
      So, what is the objective of the ETHA parameter in heat exchanger in Cycle-Tempo?

      • #4471

        ETHA is an input for off-design performance of heat exchanger. No description about ETHA is found in the literature.
