Abstract

An air conditioning system was built in all deluxe vehicles. The air conditioning fit in vehicles will give higher fuel consumption because of power absorbed to run the compressor from engine output. The main drawback of reduction in mileage will be improved in this study by increasing the heat removal rate, thereby decreasing the compressor power absorption. This study was depicted with experimental test rig consists of various components such as compressor, condenser, evaporator, expansion device, and electric motor were put together. The modifications were made on the existing system viz., the compressor was run by an electric motor instead of engine power. Inbuilt condenser fan was replaced by an evaporative cooling method using exhaust fan was surrounded by a cooling pad. Cool water is supplied to the cooling pad using a pump. The test was conducted on conventional cooling and evaporative cooling methods to obtain a similar cooling effect. The result showed that a higher coefficient of performance (COP) for the evaporative cooling system compared to the conventional system due to an increase in heat removal rate.
