The Application of Vapor-Cycle Cooling Systems to Business Aircraft 660208
In recent years, vapor-cycle cooling systems have been used widely on airliners and are currently offered on some business aircraft. Several aircraft manufacturers are now studying the incorporation of vapor-cycle systems in their new business. In an independent research and development program, the Applied Science Division of Litton Systems, Inc. has developed a vapor-cycle air conditioning system designed to the requirements of this class of aircraft. Minimum power consumption consistent with reasonable weight and volume is considered extremely important. Compatibility with ventilation or pressurization systems is also an important design consideration. Test results are given for a range of operating speeds.
