Abstract
This paper presents a numerical model to analyze the thermal and fluid dynamic behavior of a mechanical vapor compression MVC desalination system. The MVC desalination is a method to obtain distilled water using the evaporation and condensation processes at the same time, both occur at low pressure (values lower than atmospheric pressure). This method requires a compression work to increase the saturation temperature of the vapor mass flow obtained in the evaporator, which is used to feed the co...
