  • Patent number: 9683764
    Abstract: Evaporator, notably for motor vehicle air-conditioning circuit. According to the invention, the evaporator (1), which comprises three layers—upstream (2), intermediate (3) and downstream (4)—through which there flows a coolant that enters the evaporator (1) via the intermediate layer (3) and leaves the evaporator via the upstream layer (2) to cool an air flow (A) passing in succession across said upstream (2), intermediate (3) and downstream (4) layers, comprises means (5E) for inducing a pressure drop between the outlet of the intermediate layer (3) and the inlet of the downstream layer (4).

  • Patent number: 9021820
    Abstract: The invention relates to a control process for an air conditioning system. The air conditioning system comprises a thermal loop (1) used as a heat pump and an electrical heating device (2). The process calculates a global heating capacity (HCglo) in function of the temperature chosen by the passenger, the speed of the blower and the temperature of the exterior air. Then, the process calculates a heating capacity (HC1) of the thermal loop (1) and compares this heating capacity (HC1) of the thermal loop to the global heating capacity (HCglo). If the global heating capacity (HCglo) is superior to the heating capacity (HC1) of the thermal loop, the process determines a heating capacity (HC2) of the electrical heating device (2). This heating capacity (HC2) of the electrical heating device (2) added to the heating capacity (HC1) of the thermal loop (1) allows to obtain the global heating capacity (HCglo) required in function of the temperature selected by the passenger.

  • Patent number: 5862477
    Abstract: A topology verification process for controlling a Personal Communication Services (PCS) system which includes a plurality of Cordless Fixed Parts (CFP)s. The process includes mapping the spatial relationships of the CFPs utilizing Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) vectors resulting from test signals transmitted between the CFPs, to establish the topology of the system; repeating the mapping process after any disruption of power to the system, and comparing the results. Any significant change in the results, would be highly indicative of a potential change in the geographic area of operation of the system, and can be used to initiate disablement of the system operation. Additional confirmation that the system has not been reconfigured (and hence moved), may be had by matching a unique identifier for each CFP against a stored set of identifiers which specify the particular port that the CFP was connected to immediately prior to any disruption in power to the system.
