In another work, Chamra focused on fouling inside smooth and enhanced shell-and-tube refrigerant condensers by using copper alloy tubes (Chamra 2007).
Brazed-plate heat exchangers (BPHEs) have been recently introduced in the air-conditioning industry as refrigerant condensers because they provide higher heat transfer coefficients and are more compact than conventional tube-and-shell exchangers.
The steam turbine drive subsystem was modeled by first calculating the heat rejected to the condenser water in the steam surface condenser using the recorded water temperatures and the water flow rate calculated from the refrigerant condenser energy balance.
