  • Patent number: 9227482
    Abstract: A vehicle cabin air conditioning apparatus including an airflow selecting mechanism movable between a first position to provide a first airflow mode and a second position to provide a second airflow mode. The airflow selecting mechanism restricts first airflow from flowing from a first airflow conduit to a second airflow conduit when in the first position, and permits the first airflow from flowing from the first airflow conduit to the second airflow conduit when in the second position. An electronic control unit is configured to control a first blower based on a user set front cabin airflow level and a second blower based on a user set rear cabin airflow level when in the first airflow mode. The electronic control unit controls the first blower based on the user set front cabin airflow level and the user set rear cabin airflow level when in the second airflow mode.

  • Publication number: 20120252340
    Abstract: An air-conditioning apparatus for a vehicle cabin has an air-conditioning case defining a plurality of air intake modes. The plurality of air intake modes includes an ambient air intake mode, and a double-layered air intake mode. The double-layered air intake mode supplies ambient air to a front side of the vehicle cabin via a front air passage, and supplies a recirculation air from the vehicle cabin to the rear side of the vehicle cabin via a rear air passage. The controller controls the air-conditioning case to switch the air intake mode from the double-layered air intake mode to the ambient air intake mode, when an evaporator temperature falls below a first threshold value.

  • Patent number: 6266967
    Abstract: In a refrigerant cycle system for a vehicle air conditioner, when a continuous operation time of a compressor elapses a predetermined time after the compressor operates, operation of the compressor is forcibly interrupted so that a refrigerant pressure at a suction side of the compressor is changed. Thus, even when the compressor operates continuously in a long time when only a front evaporator operates among front and rear evaporators, the refrigerant pressure at a low-pressure side is forcibly changed so that a rear thermal expansion valve of the rear evaporator is forcibly opened. As a result, lubrication oil staying in the rear evaporator and a low-pressure pipe is introduced into the suction side of the compressor by a refrigerant flow due to a valve opening of the rear thermal expansion valve of the rear evaporator.
