Abstract

This paper describes and evaluates the validation of a novel software package which simulates the transient and steady-state operation of whole refrigeration systems of the type used for the storage and processing of food. This software allows practitioners to study the implications of design choices in terms of energy usage and carbon generation in the storage and processing of food stuff by refrigeration. The software can also provide refrigeration system owners and designers with information on how a system's energy consumption might be reduced.
