The system model contains a compressor model, an accumulator model, and microchannel heat exchanger models, while the expansion valve was modeled by a simple isenthalpic process, and subcooling at condenser exit was arbitrarily set as an input.
Assuming an isenthalpic process, the R-134a will exit the expansion valve as a two-phase liquid-vapor mixture at state 4 in Figure 4.
The refrigerant temperature at the inlet of the test section was calculated by considering isenthalpic process in expansion device.
