Cold Storage Air Conditioning System for Idle Stop Vehicle 2013-01-1287

The number of idle-stop vehicles is rapidly increasing in recent years, and air-conditioning technologies that extend engine stopped time while maintaining the cabin comfort are required. When the engine stops during idle- stop mode, the air conditioner also stops functioning. To maintain cabin comfort, the engine is restarted to work the air-conditioning cycle, which reduces the fuel saving effects.
As a countermeasure, a cold storage air conditioning system has been proposed. The system extends engine non-operation time by using cold storage for generating cool air while the engine is stopped. We have integrated this technology into an evaporator, which is used in the air-conditioning cycle, and the system has a short cold storage period and a necessary cold release period. This report describes its concept and effects.
