In early works done by authors, performance analysis of refrigeration systems such as power input, refrigeration load and coefficient of performance (COP) was investigated. In this article a new function called “Coefficient of Performance Exergy” or COPE has been introduced. Two objective functions of coefficient of performance exergy and exergy destruction are optimized simultaneously using the multi-objective optimization algorithm NSGAII. COPE has been maximized and exergy destruction has been minimized in order to get the best performance. Decision making has been done by means of two methods of LINAMP and TOPSIS. Finally an error analysis done for optimized values shows that LINAMP method is preferable against TOPSIS method.
Key words: Refrigeration / coefficient of performance / exergy destruction / decision making
