Domestic Air Conditioning And Training Plant With Inverter
A Domestic Air Conditioning Training Unit with Inverter for investigating the hydraulic, mechanical and thermodynamic operation of a split-type air conditioning system equipped with an inverter.
Students investigate the refrigeration system, mechanical operation and thermodynamic cycles of a split-type air conditioning system with an inverter and understand how changes at different parts of the system affect efficiency.
The demonstrates how energy can be saved by regulating compressor rpm and fault simulation switches allow students to diagnose.
The has been designed and manufactured for safe operation in the laboratory environment and the refrigerant used is a which complies with current legislation.
- System start-up and system monitoring using the protection and safety devices incorporated into the pilot plant
