Task 6 Milestones
- Using all the thermodynamic information collected, simulated, modeled and tabulated,
we calculated the ideal coefficient of performance (COP) of an absorption refrigeration
cycle for three different ionic liquid/H20 pairs over a variety of operating temperatures
and compared to the ideal COP of a traditional LiBr/H20 absorption refrigeration cycle.
As can be seen in Figure 1 and 2, there are two important observations that can be made.
(a) Firstly, all three ionic liquid/H20 pairs produce a more efficient absorption
refrigeration cycle than LiBr/H20.
(b) Secondly, it is also of note that the COPs for the IL/H20 pairs do not decrease as
quickly with increasing generator temperature compared to that of LiBr/H2O. This flatter
curve allows for much higher COP than the LiBr system as the generator temperature is
increased. This allows for a much more efficient cycle for higher waste heat

various generator temperatures, with evaporation, condensation, and absorption occurring
at Te = 5 C, T, = 50 C, and Ta = 40 C, respectively. The three different ionic liquids
are compared with LiBr/water and all function as the absorbent while H2O is used as the
