Research focuses on ways and means that improve the efficiency and reliability of vapor compression refrigeration and air conditioning equipment. The scope of the research program includes (1) system and component studies through laboratory measurements and computer simulations, (2) development of advanced simulation tools for optimized component and system design using evolutionary computation optimization schemes, (3) development of fault detection and diagnostic methodologies, (4) implementation of MicroElectroMechanical Systems in HVAC&R equipment as sensors for fault detection and diagnostics schemes, and (5) experimental investigation into heat transfer enhancements for refrigerant/lnanolubricant mixtures.
