###### Question:

(100 points) Figure below shows the schematic diagram of a two-stage cascade refrigeration system (also called the Economizer 2-Stage Refrigeration Cycle). Comparing to the cascade two-stage refrigeration system discussed in In-class Activity #10a, in this case, the flash chamber (now called Flash Intercooler) is still used but the mixing chamber is removed. The superheated vapor (2) out of the low-pressure compressor (1) is routed into the flash chamber, and the saturated vapor (3) out of the flash chamber enters directly the high-pressure compressor (II). Saturated liquid (5) out of condenser is throttled through Valve A into the Flash Intercooler; while saturated refrigerant liquid (7) exits the bottom of the flash chamber and is further throttled through expansion valve (B) into the evaporator. Let Refrigerant R134a be used as the working fluid and the mass flow rate through the evaporator be m = 0.12 kg/s. Assume that the refrigerant leaves the evaporator as a saturated vapor and both compressors operates with an isentropic efficiency of 87%. With the given operating temperature (T1) of the evaporator and the operating pressures (P and Ps) of the Flash Intercooler and Condenser as indicated in the table, you are asked to do the following: 1. Find out the corresponding properties in the table below for a thermodynamic analysis. 2. Plot schematically the cycle on a T-s diagram, clearly show all principle states. 3. Determine the mass flow rate of refrigerant, ,, entering the high-pressure compressor (II) by performing the analysis of mass and energy balance over the Flash Intercooler. 4. Determine the total power consumed by the two compressors, W. 5. Calculate the cooling load of the cycle, Oly, in tons. 6. Calculate the coefficient of the performance of the system, COPR Condenser Valve A Compressor € 6 3 Flash Intercooler 2 Compressor Valve B Evaporator 8 w
