I am suffering one of those blond moments (a bit hard really as I have no hair),
What is the correct term to describe a standard refrigeration system (the one most of us use every day, comp, evap, cond, expansion device.)
For example Thermo Electric is "Peltier", Vapour expansion is "Joule Thompson"
cheers

I was thinking of "mechanical vapor compression cycle", but, what is the scientific name of the process, phase change via change in working pressures, we could use vapor compression for joule thompson as well!

Very sad, but have to get in here, it's a reverse carnot cycle.

I thought that the 'Carnot' cycle was a theoretical cycle without losses.
