Current Advances in Ejector Modeling, Experimentation and Applications for Refrigeration and Heat Pumps. Part 1: SinglePhase Ejectors
Abstract
:1. Introduction
 Ejector fundamentals’ discussion of conventional ejector types and extension to more recent concepts employing complex geometries for the nozzles and the mixing chambers.
 Treatment of singlephase and twophase ejector variants in separate developments for a full account and analysis of their progress.
 Inclusion of ejector operational features, conditions affecting stability and performance, such as external constraints, internal geometry, flow regimes as well as many other considerations, which are thoroughly described and discussed in detail.
 Existing and potential ejector applications, beyond conventional refrigeration systems and selected from different areas of specialties (buildings, transportation, industry and several other domains). Their discussion aims to trigger a better exchange of information and bridge between professionals of different backgrounds and objectives.
 Modeling methods, their types and particularities thoroughly dissected to provide guidance, depending on the research objectives pursued. Typical analytical and numerical (computational fluid dynamics, CFD) models to serve as a common basis for the vast majority of similar research are proposed.
 Provision of very detailed, abundantly discussed information on the fundamental elements serving as building blocks to help structure such models. Further, a thorough discussion of the modeling works available in the literature supported by visualization and experiments complements this information.

4. Flow Regimes and Internal Structure
4.1. Primary Nozzle Flow Regimes
 If the primary inlet pressure is insufficient, the jet will be supersonic in part of the divergent but leaves the nozzle in subsonic conditions due to a normal shock wave formation inside the divergent. This occurrence is a particular case of an overexpanded flow.
 When the primary pressure increases, the flow becomes an overexpanded jet of conic form with a succession of oblique shocks, generally occurring when the nozzle exit pressure is lower than the reigning ambient.
 If the primary pressure further increases, then the jet becomes underexpanded and will continue to expand past the nozzle to reach the ambient condition.
4.2. Ejector Internal Flow Structure
 Fully developed supersonic flow (Figure 17a): occurs for high inlet pressures and low induced flows. The primary jet is fully expanded in the mixing chamber and the induced flow is equally supersonic.
 Supersonic flow with secondary sonic throat (Figure 17b): the primary jet expansion is less important than in the preceding regime and the induced flow is higher, reaching sonic conditions in the mixing chamber at a location where the effective crosssection is minimum. Downstream of this point, both flows are supersonic.
 Supersonic saturated regime (Figure 17c): the primary jet is supersonic with moderately low pressure and the induced flow remains subsonic. A pseudoshock front sets somewhere between the primary nozzle outlet and the mixing throat inlet.
 Supersonic regime with double choking (Figure 17d): characterized by double choking, this flow exhibits two distinct pseudoshocks, the first behind the primary nozzle and the second before the diffuser inlet. This regime occurs for low geometric ratios, corresponding to small mixing chamber sections.
