STANDARDIZATION OF AIR CONDITIONING AND HEATING INSTALLATIONS. UNCONVENTIONAL AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEMS FOR RAILWAY SERVICE
In the present report 5 different air conditioning systems or cooling units, installed either tentatively in railway vehicles or introduced in other fields of application (road transport vehicles and aircraft) are described. After a short description concerning the design and operation, each of the various systems is compared with the conventional compressor system and the various advantages and drawbacks are demonstrated. No recommendation is made for the general application in RIC coaches, because none of the systems, when considered in their entirety, are more advantageous than the conventional system. In the appendices added to the report, some of these systems are described in detail.
