Abstract:

This article discusses the method of determining thermodynamically optimum parameters of cycles of low-boiling substances. The most promising low-boiling substance is carbon dioxide. Three cycles of the low-boiling substance have been proposed a gas cycle, a cycle with liquid compression and a compound cycle. At the initial and final temperatures of the cycle, the basic thermodynamic parameter of the scheme determining its economy is the degree of increase in pressure. The selection of temperature difference in heat exchangers and losses in pressure represents a technical and economic problem not examined in this article. Author
