This paper discusses a Modelica library of switching moving boundary models for two-phase flow heat exchangers: evaporators and condensers. The equation-based object-oriented modeling paradigm has been considered by means of designing basic models applying the conservation laws for each flow state: subcooled liquid; two-phase flow and superheated vapor. Evaporator and condenser models have been developed by interconnecting the basic models and including mechanisms to switch between different configurations: general; flooded and dry evaporators and condensers. Finally; simulation results are presented by an integrity and stability test case.

Keywords: moving boundary model; switching; two-phase flow; evaporator; condenser
