Issued topics of Doctoral Study Program

  1. Improving the energy efficiency of heat pump and refrigeration cycles with the use of phase change materials (PCM)

    The aim is to explore the possibilities of using PCMs in the vapor-compression cycles of heat pumps and refrigeration systems in order to increase the energy efficiency of their operating cycles. The possibilities of integrating PCM-based thermal energy storage in the vapor-compression cycles will be explored by computer simulations. The best solutions will be validated experimentally on a lab-scale vapor-compression refrigeration system.
