The **Refrigerant Coefficient of Performance (COP) Calculator** calculates the efficiency of a refrigeration system by comparing the cooling capacity to the power input.

### Coefficient of Performance (COP) Formula:

The COP is calculated as:

\[ \text{COP} = \frac{\text{Cooling Capacity}}{\text{Power Input}} \]

Where:

**Cooling Capacity**is the cooling output of the system (kW),**Power Input**is the electrical power used by the system (kW).

### Example:

If the cooling capacity is 10 kW and the power input is 2 kW, the COP would be:

\[ \text{COP} = \frac{10}{2} = 5 \]

### Importance of COP:

A higher COP indicates a more efficient refrigeration system, meaning it provides more cooling for the same amount of energy input. This is crucial for designing energy-efficient HVAC and refrigeration systems, where improving the COP can result in significant energy savings.

### Usage:

This calculator is commonly used by engineers and system designers to evaluate and improve the efficiency of refrigeration systems, ensuring optimized performance.
