Description

Control method of dual air conditioner using phase change material {Method for Operating Duel Air Conditioning Device Using Phase Change Material}

The present invention relates to a control method of a dual air conditioner system using a phase change material, and more specifically, to maintain the temperature of the cooling water at a low temperature to cool indoor air using a phase change material, and to clean the air. , Dehumidification, cooling relates to a control method of a dual air conditioner device using a phase change material that can be performed in a single device with high efficiency.

In general, the indoor space sealed from the outside, such as a building or a vehicle, is intended to create a cool indoor environment by lowering the indoor temperature increased in hot weather. A cooling device is installed and used.

Recently, due to the weight reduction of the cooling system and the reasons for price and efficiency, a mechanical compression type cooling system using Freon gas is used together with a refrigerant of the carbon fluoride (CFC) series. Such refrigerant systems include evaporators, condensers, compressors, Since the configuration of the expansion valve and the like form a structure connected to each other with a pipe, the refrigerant is circulated through the pipe and is configured to exchange heat with air in the room as it is compressed and expanded.

In the case of the conventional air conditioner system, the refrigerant circulates through the compressor, condenser, expansion valve and evaporator in order to absorb heat from the evaporator and release heat from the condenser. At this time, the evaporator is located indoors, and the condenser is located outdoors together with the compressor. In this way, by absorbing heat from the evaporator located in the room and releasing heat from the condenser located in the room, the heat in the room can be moved to the outdoors and the room can be kept cool.

However, in such a conventional air conditioner system, since the refrigerant must move directly between the indoor unit and the outdoor unit, there is a hassle of connecting a pipe through which a hole can be moved by drilling a hole in the wall. In addition, when installing and removing the air conditioner, there is a problem that the hole in the wall must be filled again.

However, in the case of the conventional cooling device, the structure is very complicated, so the production process is difficult, and there is a problem that the overall device volume is large and the manufacturing cost is high from the components such as a compressor or a condenser. In addition, the conventional cooling device has a problem that there is a risk of leakage of chlorofluorocarbon, which is a refrigerant, and since the refrigerant naturally leaks over time, the refrigerant must be periodically replenished, which leads to troublesome maintenance and maintenance costs. there was.

In order to solve this problem, as shown in Patent Document 1, a window type air conditioner that can be installed in a window connecting the inside and the outside of a room was developed, but such a window type air conditioner also needs to be fixedly installed in a window and does not use an air conditioner. In some cases, there is a problem that cannot act as a window.

In addition, as a conventional technique disclosed in order to solve the above problems, Patent Literature 2 includes a blower for sucking and blowing outside air; An intake having a hollow portion and forming a plurality of air injection passages communicating the inner and outer circumferential surfaces, a casing in which the intake is fixed inside, and an intake distribution space formed in communication with the outside of the plurality of air injection passages of the intake is formed. A cooling turbine provided rotatably in the hollow portion and rotated by air injected through the air injection passage, and including a turbine blade that cools the injected air and discharges it in an axial direction; A blower pipe communicating the blower with the intake distribution space; A cooling air discharge pipe for discharging air cooled by the cooling turbine; A first heat exchanger provided to exchange heat with external air sucked into the blower by the blower tube; A second heat exchanger provided to exchange heat with cooling air discharged from the cooling air discharge pipe to the blower pipe; A second high temperature air supply line having one end communicating with the blower pipe and the other end communicating with the outlet end side of the cooling air discharge pipe; A refrigerant-free cooling device is known, characterized in that the use of a refrigerant is unnecessary as it is configured to include a valve for temperature control provided in the second high-temperature air supply line.

However, in the case of the above Patent Document 2, there is a problem in that the cooling efficiency is significantly reduced by simply cooling the air with only the blower and the cooling turbine, and there is a problem in that the power consumption is large due to excessive use of the blower or the cooling turbine.
