Refrigeration & Air-conditioning Interview & Viva Questions With Answers
Define Refrigeration – Ans : Refrigeration may be defined as a process of producing cold by extracting heat from a body or space and heat thus removed is rejected to atmosphere or space where it is unobjectionable.
What is Mechanical Refrigeration ? Ans : Producing cold by machine.
Classify the different Refrigeration Systems .
Ans : It may be of the following three types 1. Vapor Compression Refrigeration System 2. Vapor absorption Refrigeration System 3. Air Refrigeration Systems .
What are the basic Units of Mechanical Refrigeration systems ?
Ans : Refrigeration system has 4 basic units
a. An Evaporator – The cooling Unit
b. A pump or Compressor
c. A Condenser – The heat disposer
d. A liquid mixing device – Expansion valve or cylinder or capillary tube
Which Unit Produces Cooling Effect in the refrigeration system ?
Ans : The evaporator
What is the Unit of Refrigeration ?
Ans : As Power Unit of mechanical devices is given by H.P , for electrical equipment the unit of power is kW or MW . In the same way the unit of refrigeration is ” Tonnes of Refrigeration ” .
What is One Tonne of Refrigeration ?
Ans: One Tonne of Refrigeration means machine is capable of removing heat from a body equal to the heat absorbed by one tonne of ice when it melts from 0 ° C to 0 ° C Water in 24 hours . Here one tonne is equal to 2000 lb .
What is the capacity of one tonne machine in MKS system ?
Ans : In MKS system a machine having capacity to produce cooling effect of 50 kcal/minute is known to be a “One Tonne Machine” .
Define Co-efficient of Performance. Ans : In case of engine the performance is judged the efficiency of the engine. That is – Efficiency = Work Done / Heat Supplied .
And in case of refrigeration the process is first reversed that is we have to supply work to obtain lower temperature or say for that removal of heat. Thus performance of refrigeration is just reversed . That is – N/W
Where – N = The rate of heat abstracted from the body in given time technically called “Net Refrigeration Effect” and W = Work Done .
Thus COP = Net Refrigeration Effect / Work Done Supplied . This is Called Theoretical COP .
What is Relative COP ?
Ans : It is the ratio of actual COP and Theoretical COP .
Describe Refrigeration system with Reversed Rankin Cycle . Draw T-S and P-h Diagram of the cycle with Sub-cooling and Super-heating. .
Ans: Please Follow This Link . T-S and P-h diagram with subcooling and superheating.
