000214879 520__ $$aMagnetic refrigeration is a new environmentally benign technology and a promising alternative to conventional vapor-cycle refrigeration. The household refrigerator without a freezing compartment shows very good prospects for a successful application. This article starts with the general principle of magnetic refrigeration. An example of a magnet assembly is proposed and the corresponding magnetic flux lines are evaluated with a three-dimensional finite-element method (FEM). The maximum specific cooling capacity of magneto caloric materials is described. The specific cooling power of a magneto caloric material is found to be large even for medium magnetic field changes, especially if the frequency is not too small. For a domestic magnetic refrigerator, a comparison with a standard compressor refrigerator is presented. The modeling of a rotary magnetic refrigerator is described and its dynamic behavior is investigated. The physical model is based on a mapping of the magneto-thermodynamic problem from a cylinder onto two rectangles. In this model, in a basic centre cell, two coupled linear partial differential equations are solved, which have been programmed in the Modelica language. Steady-state solutions are envisaged to determine the coefficient of performance, COP, for these conditions. In future work the developed model shall be applied for an optimization of the magnetic refrigerator and to determine the related best parameters.
