Flow-Induced Tones in Automotive Refrigerant Systems 2007-01-2294

Transient higher-frequency flow-induced tones are often perceived following air-conditioning (A/C) compressor engagements in automotive refrigerant systems, especially the ones with Thermostatic Expansion Valve (TXV) controlled systems. In this paper, the mechanisms of the acoustic tones induced by turbulent flow and shear-layer-instability in A/C lines are presented. Some of the recommended countermeasures for the attenuation and suppression of these flow-induced transient tones are also discussed.
