Air Conditioning Electric Vehicles with an Electronically Driven Variable Speed Scroll Type Compressor 901738
A realistic air conditioning system for electric vehicles, (EV), which minimizes the sacrifice of drive range is proposed in this paper. A variable speed semi-hermetic scroll compressor and an automatic louver outlet air temperature control method for a small delivery van are used to attain suitable cooling performance and interior temperature controllability with acceptable noise characteristics.
This air conditioning system, (A/C), offers a pre-cooling feature simply by tapping power from commercial electricity outlets before departing for service. The effect of a practical heat influx reduction applied to the vehicle, and of condenser improvement, is evaluated in terms of the electric power consumption and the actual sacrifice of the vehicle's drive range.
