Abstract—By using ANSYS Fluent 14.5 In computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis, Dimpled Plate coil evaporator with different passage likes six passages and eight passages are simulated using the appropriate boundary conditions and fluid properties specified to the system with suitable assumptions. The process in solving simulation consists of modeling and meshing the basic geometry of the Dimpled plate coil evaporator using CFD package ANSYS 14.5. The objective of the project is to study the temperature field of the coil using ANSYS software tools. The temperature contours was plotted using ANSYS 14.5 for different passages of Dimpled plate coil evaporator. Different Dimpled plate coil evaporator passages configurations is analyzed using CFD software for validation of experimental values determined the output temperature of Plate coil evaporator to improving the coefficient of performance of the System.

Index Terms—Bonded coil Evaporator, Plate coil evaporator (PHE), Dimpled plate and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
