Abstract: The ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) is attracted attention as one of the promising renewable energy. OTEC uses small temperature difference between surface and deep sea water. Plate-type heat exchangers, or evaporators, are usually used for OTEC to obtain vapor for electric generator. Ammonia is used for OTEC as a working fluid. It is important to improve thermal performance of an evaporator for the OTEC. Channel dimension is one of the important factors to improve heat transfer performance of an evapor… Show more
