Abstract

Indirect evaporative cooling, which utilizes the principles of water evaporation to absorb heat, has gained wide acceptance in recent years for use in air conditioning due to its simplicity of construction and effective use of natural energy. In comparison to conventional vapor compression and adsorption/ absorption air conditioning systems, this resulted to a considerably better system. Using nanoparticles for a combination of water and nanoparticles as (NP4% + W96%) increased the system’s performance. Air cooling is carried out in a system under different conditions. By utilizing range and velocity difference for the samples tested, different parameters such as wet bulb effectiveness (WBT), cooling capacity, humidity ratio, and LMTD (Logarithmic mean temperature difference) are calculated. One sample includes water, whereas the other contains copper oxide (CuO) as nanoparticles with a composition of (NP4% + W96%). It has been properly researched how the performance of IEC (Indirect Evaporative Cooling) systems is affected by changing intake air velocities, various building features, and variable water flow rates. Indirect evaporative cooling has evolved as a long-term, cost-effective, and energy-efficient replacement for conventional air conditioning systems for space cooling. As a cost-effective technique, evaporative cooling has been promoted for the last ten years.
