  • Publication number: 20220128260
    Abstract: The cooling system according to the present invention may dehumidify and cool the indoor air by using the ejector, the ejector membrane, the evaporation chamber, and the indoor dehumidifying membrane. In addition, the coefficient of performance of the cooling system may be improved by cooling the refrigerant using evaporation latent heat generated in the evaporation chamber by the suction force of the ejector and cooling the indoor air using the refrigerant. In addition, by using solar heat to generate high-temperature and high-pressure steam and supply the generated steam to the ejector, energy use efficiency may be improved. In addition, since the temperature of the steam generated in the steam generating portion may be lowered by arranging and using the two first and second ejectors in multiple stages, energy efficiency may be further improved by reducing the consumption of the heat source required for steam generation.

  • Patent number: 11306912
    Abstract: In the present invention, a recuperator is used in a refrigerant cycle to make a heat exchange between a refrigerant generated in a condenser and a refrigerant before flowing into a compressor, thereby supercooling the refrigerant to minimize the quality of the refrigerant introduced into an evaporator, elevating temperatures at an inlet and an outlet of the compressor, and increasing condensed heat of the condenser. In the present invention, a recuperator is used to increase condensed heat of the condenser, leading to increasing the heat which circulation water circulating in a steam producing cycle receives from the condenser, whereby steam production efficiency can be improved.

  • Patent number: 11028711
    Abstract: According to the present invention, part of carbon dioxide heated by a heater is supplied to a dry gas seal portion of a compressor so that a device for pressurizing and heating a seal gas is not additionally required, configuration can be simplified and cost can be reduced. In addition, a seal gas flow path includes a low-temperature seal gas flow path and a high-temperature seal gas flow path so that, in an initial driving mode, carbon dioxide heated by a high-temperature portion of the heater is used as a seal gas and in a turbine-driving mode, carbon dioxide heated by a low-temperature portion of the heater is used as a seal gas and thus a more efficient operation can be performed.
