Production of artificial cold for industry, based on the magnetocaloric effect
Dorin Botoc, Ionut-Bogdan Rusu, Adrian Plesca, Jurij Avsec, 2020, original scientific article

Abstract: The most common current technology for producing artificial cold is based on the operation of gas compression and absorption, which was discovered more than a century ago. This technology uses refrigerants as a heat transfer agent. Magnetic refrigeration is an innovative technology that works based on the magnetocaloric effect and the properties of certain rare materials/metals. The present paper describes a simulation of the magnetocaloric effect (MCE) of a gadolinium plate (Gd.), which is the main component of the active magnetic regenerator (AMR). The first part includes a description and history of the discovery of the magnetocaloric effect of materials that possess such properties. The continuation is a COMSOL Multiphysics modelling of AMR's main component: a gadolinium (Gd) plate. The simulation of the magnetocaloric effects and the heat dispersion on its surface was done in COMSOL, as was the highlighting of the adiabatic temperature on the flat surface of the plate. Water was used as a heat transfer agent, and gadolinium (Gd) was used as a reference criterion for the materials. The model simulates a single step of the magnetic refrigeration cycle and evaluates the AMR's performance with a single board. This study enables identifying the most important characteristics that influence the active magnetic regenerator's thermal behaviour.

Modelling of magnetic regenerator and heat transfer agent in microchannels
Dorin Botoc, Bianca Eliza Oneata, Rusu Ionut, Alexandru Salceanu, Jurij Avsec, 2021, original scientific article

Abstract: In this article, a brief introduction of conventional refrigeration is given, followed by a description and history of magnetic refrigeration. The active magnetic regenerator comprises 12 parallel plates of magnetocaloric material (gadolinium (Gd)), through which circulates the heat transfer fluid (water, in this case). At both ends of the regenerator are the heat exchangers. The hot heat exchanger (HHEX) and the cold heat exchanger (CHEX) connects the fluid to the heat sources. The principle of operation of a magnetic refrigeration installation is based on exploiting the magnetocaloric effect from the materials that possess these properties (in this case, Gd).
