Maisotsenko cycle: technology overview and energy-saving potential in cooling systems
As a conclusion, M-cycle can satisfy the cooling demand of most Greek cities and it is also expected to do at other Mediterranean regions of similar ambient conditionswithout consuming high amounts of electricity and water. In reality, one layer of heat and mass exchanger HMX is show on Figure 4.
According to the first configuration, the water evaporates into the air to be cooled; as a result, the product air is cold and wet. Received 25 October Evaporative air-conditioning is a really promising technology.
Home Journals Why publish with us? On the contrary, some maisofsenko of ECs produce an air stream of extremely high humidity sometimes, the stream is almost saturated and consume a significant amount of water.
This cycle is an indirect evaporative cooling—based cycle, which utilizes a smart geometrical configuration for the air distribution. M-cycle, evaporative cooling, high efficiency, renewable energy, energy saving, low CO 2 emission Introduction Although conventional air-conditioning systems are widely accepted to be of high energy consumption, they cover a significant part of needs for air-conditioning.
The replacement of conventional cooling systems by ones based on M-cycle leads to a significant environmental benefit, as:.
So, if we aim to minimize water consumption, the lowering of the working stream mass flow is maisotenko best solution the cooler consumes less than 1.

Ignoring the rates of return, it is clear that at about 6, hours of operation Figure 7the increased cost of installation of an EC balances the maisotsehko cost of operation of an conventional cooler. There are two basic categories of EC: It was also important to understand the energy-saving potential of an EC, based on M-cycle.
Thus, the efficiency of the ECs is defined as the ratio of current to maximum possible temperature drop:. The achievement of this geometry is the high efficiency of the cycle, as it produces cold air of temperature lower than the wet-bulb ambient air temperature.
Thus, the payback period of an EC, compared to a conventional one, is about 2. Indirect evaporative cooling of air to a sub wet-bulb temperature.

An ideal EC would produce air as cool as the wet-bulb temperature, while a real cooler cannot reach such a low temperature. This work is published and licensed by Dove Medical Press Limited. The full terms of this license are available at https: For this reason, the specific water consumption was defined, maisotsenkko is equal to the amount of water the evaporation of which can produce maieotsenko kWh c.
When water evaporates and becomes vapor, the heat is removed from the air, resulting in a cooler air temperature.
