In this study, three new mixed refrigerants with low GWP values, R1234yf/R134a, R1234yf/R125, and R1234yf/R13I1, were evaluated as replacements for R134a refrigerant using two vapor compression configurations. The experiment revealed that these mixtures can be used as environmentally friendly alternatives for this configuration.
