Comparison of entropy difference in the cooling process
Energy, Materials and Systems, Faculty of Science and Technology Carre 2049, P.O. Box 217, 7500 AE Enschede, The Netherlands
The aim of this study is to create an overview of the various cooling technologies at room temperature. The energy absorbed during the cooling step is validated through an entropy analysis. The comparison involves vaporization, desorption of H2 of metal hydrides, isothermal expansion, magnetocaloric effect and chemical reaction.
