Analysis On Turbo Air-Conditioner: An Innovative Concept
Abstract: The conventional automobile air conditioning system draws power from the engine. The air conditioning system
consumes quite a reasonable amount of fuel energy. This project aims at introducing a turbocharger in order to transform the
kinetic energy of the exhaust gas into useful power to run the compressor of the AC system. This avoids the extraction of
power from the engine, exempting the use of belts and pulleys. This paper validates the use of gas turbines as a power input
for AC compressor using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The use of magnetic gears helps to transfer the torque at
the required rpm. This brings out better use of exhaust gas.
