The European F-Gas regulation and the recently amended Montreal protocol are having a strong impact on how HVAC&R systems are developed. With the need for a long-term environmentally sustainable refrigerant solution, research and industry are currently exploring innovative designs to reduce the environmental impact of HVAC&R systems.
To ensure the energy efficiency of these systems and reduce their power consumption, it is essential to upgrade the machine's components design and to control the plant optimally.
So, now more than ever, Technical and R&D departments are facing a tough challenge - but using the right engineering simulation tools can help.
Application Engineer, Thermal Specialist
Dr. Paolo Artuso is currently application engineer at BSIM engineering and is specialized in the development of numerical models for thermal applications. This includes all the industrial refrigeration field from automotive to stationary refrigeration, where he worked over the last 6 years. Paolo holds a MSc in Energy Engineer and a PhD in industrial refrigeration, achieved at National Research Council of Padua, where he specialized in integrated refrigeration systems that utilize CO2 as working fluid for supermarkets, hotels and refrigerated transport systems.
