Study of an alternative vehicular air conditioning system with the application of Vortex Tubes utilizing the concept of energetic regeneration 2006-01-2576

This paper presents an application study of vortex tubes in automotive air conditioning systems. The feeding of vortex tubes occurs with compressed air flow, which can be stored for consumption when necessary. Because of this characteristic, there is the possibility of energy recovery (energy that is dissipated to the environment in the vehicle braking process currently). This study has been divided in the investigation of vortex tubes and regenerative systems, investigation of the potential of energetic reuse, configuration system proposal, main components first selection and viability analysis for cars and trucks.
