In this study, two different refrigerant types R215/218/290 mixture and R123 are used in a theoretical analysis for a cascade refrigeration system's low temperature circuit. This study presents comparison of energetic and exergetic performance of these refrigerants. A package program (EES) were used for solve thermodynamic equations of the refrigerants for the analysis to solve thermodynamic equations of the refrigerants. Results are presented graphically.
