  • Patent number: 9518568
    Abstract: An inclination angle of a swash plate of a swash plate type variable displacement compressor is rapidly changed to the maximum when electric current is supplied to an electromagnetic solenoid and therefore the compressor is operated at the maximum displacement. When a second valve body is opened, a first valve body is closed; when the second valve body is closed, a valve opening of the first valve body is controlled. Under the circumstance that electric current is supplied to the electromagnetic solenoid and an instruction for operating the compressor at the maximum displacement is issued, when the first valve body is closed, the second valve body is opened. In addition to supply of refrigerant gas from a discharge chamber to a control pressure chamber through a first supply passage, refrigerant gas is supplied from the discharge chamber to the control pressure chamber through a second supply passage.
