1. In an ammonia refrigeration system, the capacity is 210 kW at a temperature of -20℃. The
vapor from the evaporator is pumped by one compressor to the condensing pressure of 1431
kPa. Later, the system was revised to a two-stage compression operating on the cycle shown
below with intercooling but no removal of flash at 555 kPa.

(a) Calculate the power required by the single compressor in the original system.

(b) Calculate the total power required by the two compressors in the revised system.

Solution:

(a) Calculate the power required by the single compressor in the original system.

Wc1 = 60.34 kW

(b) Calculate the total power required by the two compressors in the revised system.
