In this paper, we have proposed a vapor cycle refrigeration system as a cooling system to provide cooling air to the aircraft external reconnaissance stores. In the proposed vapor cycle system, receiver which prevents refrigerant from subcooling was eliminated and thermal expansion valve was replaced with electronic expansion valve. The vapor cycle refrigeration system is aimed to provide cooling air to the reconnaissance stores which is added to the aircraft in the form of external store. The wide temperature range of ambient air from the flight conditions can decrease the cooling performance and can make the refrigeration system unstable in low ambient temperature. Performance characteristics of the vapor cycle refrigeration system has been experimented under air conditions which is derived from the flight envelope. From the experiments, the vapor cycle refrigeration system has been proved to provide enough cooling air to the reconnaissance equipment and to be stable under all the flight conditions.
Key Words: Vapor Cycle Refrigeration System, Reconnaissance Equipment, Receiver, Electronic Expansion Valve, Subcooling
