4.5 Calculating Energy Consumption of Various Refrigerant using without & with H.E

4.5.1 Calculating the Energy Consumption for the Domestic Refrigerator for Running System:

By giving electric power to refrigerator tutor energy meter placed to output supply to calculate energy consumption .Taking the reading from table 4.1.1&4.1.2 evaporator, 5 revolution of energy meter in seconds. Hence calculate the energy consumption into hours.

At -9ºc freezer point time taken for 5 revolution of energy meter is 60second

Energy meter constant :1200revolution: 1 KW

:1200=3600Kj

1 revolution:3600/1200 Kj/rev

For 5 revolution :(5*3600)/ (60*1200)

Energy consumption: 0.25Kw-hr
