Abstract

Conventional active-regenerator magnetocaloric devices include moving parts, with the purpose of generating an oscillating magnetic field in the magneto-caloric material, placed inside the regenerator. In this work a different design is analyzed, for application in a magnetocaloric heat pump. In this design all the parts of the machine are static and the oscillating field is generated by varying the currents of electromagnets included in the hybrid magnetic assembly. The use of different permanent magnet materials is compared with the perspective of maximizing the coefficient of performance of the device.
