This paper investigates the robustness of a diagnostic model for the performance evaluation of reciprocating chillers. The model, which is described by three adjustable parameters of the chiller, is verified by experimental results with three purpose-built system configurations. It is found that the model is both flexible and accurate with respect to changes in the system layout and the predictions of chiller coefficients of performance (COP) are well within the experimental uncertainties.
