Abstract—This paper provides a detailed exergy analysis for theoretical vapour compression refrigeration cycle using R404A, R407C and R410A. The equations of exergetic efficiency and exergy destruction for the main system components such as compressor, condenser expansion device, liquid-vapour heat exchanger and evaporator are developed. The relations for total exergy destruction in the system, the overall exegetic efficiency of the system and Exergy Destruction Ratio (EDR) related to exergetic efficiency are obtained. Also, an expression for Coefficient of Performance (COP) of refrigeration cycle is developed. The investigations shows that various results are obtained for the effect of evaporating temperatures, condensing temperatures, degree of subcooling and effectiveness of liquid-vapour heat exchanger on COP, exergetic efficiency and EDR of theoretical vapour compression refrigeration cycle.
