  • Patent number: 10994586
    Abstract: A vehicle air-conditioning device is a heat pump type vehicle air-conditioning device including an external heat exchanger that performs heat exchange between refrigerant flowing the inside thereof and outside air. With the vehicle air-conditioning device, a controller functions as a temperature-difference calculation unit that calculates the temperature difference ?T between the refrigerant in a refrigerant flow path on the exit side of the external heat exchanger and the outside air, and in addition, the controller functions as a frost formation determination unit that determines that frost formation is caused on the external heat exchanger on the basis of the elapsed time to of a state in which the temperature difference ?T is equal to or larger than a frost-formation temperature difference at which the frost formation may be caused on the external heat exchanger.

  • Patent number: 10988001
    Abstract: An air conditioning device for a vehicle includes a first flow path through which air subject to dehumidification flows, a second flow path through which air for recovery flows, a desiccant part and a controller. The desiccant part is fluidly communicated with the first and second flow paths, and configured to adsorb moisture contained in the air subject to dehumidification, and to discharge the moisture to the air for recovery. The controller is configured to control an air volume of the air subject to dehumidification and an air volume of the air for recovery so that the air volume of the air for recovery is less than the air volume of the air subject to dehumidification, after the air volume of the air for recovery reaches a prescribed air volume for achieving a target dehumidification amount of the air subject to dehumidification.
