Abstract

We are developing 10 kW class turbo-Brayton refrigerator whose working fluid is neon gas. Its high pressure value is 1 MPa and its low pressure value is 0.5 MPa. The refrigerator consists of two turbine-compressors and a heat exchanger. The turbine-compressor has a turbo-expander on one side of its shaft and a turbo-compressor on the other side of the shaft. Two turbo-compressors are connected in series and two turbo-expanders are set in parallel. So, all amount of neon gas is compressed by two stages and each half a mount of neon gas is expanded by one stage. Two turbinecompressors are the same machines and development cost and time are minimized. In this stage, we made one prototype turbine-compressor and installed it in a performance test facility. This paper shows details of the turbine-compressor and refrigerator cooling power simulation results.
