The automobile refrigeration system`s performance and power-saving coefficient were evaluated experimentally in this study. The pad made of cellulose and water recirculated system is used for cooling the atmospheric air before passing the condenser and radiator of an automobile. The study was done on this case with and without using the cellulose pad. It measured the temperatures and pressures, and then the coefficient of performance and power saving have calculated at the peak period time (at 11 am, 12 am, and 1 pm). The discharge temperature also decreases when the use of a cellulose pad. The results illustrate the benefits of adding a cellulose pad up to the condenser and radiator of an automobile, the coefficient of performance has increased by about (27%) the isentropic efficiency of the compressor by about (10%) and the temperature reduction of the discharge temperature of the refrigerant about (13%).
