OVERALL ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY OF REFRIGERATION SYSTEMS AND AIR-CONDITIONING UNITS FOR RAILWAY COACHES, AND THE SIGNIFICANCE OF ENERGY SUPPLY WITH RESPECT TO THEIR DESIGN

Air conditioning system and unit for open coaches is described in which cooling is effected by means of compressors and a halogenated hydrocarbon refrigerant; the energy transmission to the coach is effected by utilizing the required amount of inflowing air as an energy carrier; air injection occurs in front of the windows by adding secondary air through effective induction of the inflowing air; and the air delivery systems to the compartments can be laid out as a dual or single-duct installation with electric reheating in the compartments.
