Stationary Model to Predict Performance of the Car Air Conditioning System Using Only Standard Components Data 2001-01-0589

A stationary model of a car air conditioning system was developed to evaluate refrigerant, mechanical power and all the fluid properties along the circuit. The model requires only the characteristics of the constituents, which are normally available from suppliers.
This approach enables estimation of system performance with satisfactory accuracy, already during the design approach, and allows to determine the most appropriate components in order to meet target requirements with a satisfactory balance of the refrigerant circuit.
