  • Publication number: 20210039476
    Abstract: A vehicle cabin air conditioning system has an individual air conditioner for conditioning air in a target space in a cabin. The individual air conditioner has a blower, a suction port, a heat generator, and a supply port. The heat generator concurrently generates cold heat and warm heat inside the housing. At least one of the cold air cooled with the cold heat and the warm air heated with the warm heat is supplied from the supply port to the target space. The vehicle cabin air conditioning system has a thermal load reducing unit and a supply flow path. The thermal load reducing unit adjusts the temperature of air sucked from the suction port in order to reduce the thermal load in the heat generator. The supply flow path guides the air controlled in temperature by the thermal load reducing unit to the suction port.
