Experimental Analysis on the Implementation of the Thermoacoustic Refrigeration System Using Working Medium as Air

Sajid Siddiqui and Akash Langde

Abstract

Thermoacoustic refrigeration is a relatively recent technology that has gained notoriety in the scientific community in the past few years. It involves producing low temperatures with the aid of acoustic sound waves. A thermoacoustic refrigeration system is an appliance that transfers heat via a solid medium characterized as a stack in a resonator tube employing acoustic sound energy as an input. Temperature disparity established across the stack is what determines how well a thermoacoustic refrigerator works. The stack is the thermoacoustic system’s most crucial component. The stack, which is composed of Mylar and shaped like a honeycomb, is utilized in the present experimental investigation. Using a mix of set independent and set dependent variables, the experimental data and system analysis were conducted. Air was employed as the system’s working medium, and varied pressures and resonant frequencies were applied in order to determine the performance parameters that would yield the best results for the design. The findings are shown, and they support the idea that the stack and its associated parameters play a crucial role in the thermoacoustic refrigeration system’s ability to work at its best. The analysis provided offers suggestions for improving thermoacoustic refrigerators’ effectiveness, which is still lacking because of their comparatively modest accomplishment. The performance coefficient of the system can also be improved by adjusting other factors like the resonant frequency and the medium of the resonator tube.
