Fuzzy and Matlab/Simulink Modelling of the Air Compression Refrigeration Cycle
Keywords:The coefficient of performance, Matlab/Simulink, Takagi-Sugeno-Kang, refrigeration cycles
The coefficient of performance (COP) for a gas refrigeration cycle was estimated using Matlab/Simulink and fuzzy logic. A Matlab/Simulink model of the gas refrigeration cycle was developed, and the output was compared to theoretical data. Additionally, fuzzy logic was used to estimate the COP for arbitrary low- and high-pressure levels. Simulation results were used to develop a multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) fuzzy Takagi-Sugeno-Kang (TSK)-based model. Both the Matlab/Simulink and the MIMO fuzzy model were found to be very well correlated with theoretical results, with an error of less than 2 %. These results demonstrate the effectiveness of using fuzzy logic to analyse gas refrigeration cycles and suggest that this approach can be extended to analyse other thermodynamic cycles.
