TH512 CAR AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The trainer unit contains a belt-driven compressor, an air-cooled condenser and an evaporator with cold air outlet. All components used in the trainer are normal automotive parts. A motor is used to drive to the compressor by a V-belt and step pulleys.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • Study of layout and process diagram.
  • Recognition of typical faults and repair on an air conditioner.
  • Simulation of system faults.
  • Thermodynamic cyclic process.
  • Observation of pressures and temperatures.
