Abstract: The occurrence of flow choking in an ejector of an ejector refrigeration system (ERS) was analysed and a model for predicting the maximum flow ratio of the ejector was developed. The multi-parameter equation to calculate the mass flow ratio takes into account the performance of the primary nozzle, the flow entrainment and mixing relating to ejector geometry and operating conditions. We validated the model using the reported experimental data of refrigerant R113, R141b and steam ERS. The present model was shown to provide better accuracy compared with results obtained by applying the existing 1-D ejector theory. We discussed the application of the model and highlighted the significance of the parameters for future work. © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. and IIR.
