  • Publication number: 20190017748
    Abstract: In a plate heat exchanger, a bypass passage and a main passage are formed upstream of first passages and second passages between adjacent ones of first heat transfer plates and second heat transfer plates. The bypass passage allows first fluid flowing from an inflow port of the first fluid or second fluid flowing from an inflow port of the second fluid to pass a side farther than a corresponding one of adjacent holes while spreading in a vertical direction in a front view and then flow into an inner fin or a corrugated heat transfer surface. The main passage allows the first fluid flowing from the inflow port of the first fluid or the second fluid flowing from the inflow port of the second fluid to directly flow toward the inner fin or the corrugated heat transfer surface without routing through the bypass passage. A flat space is formed around an entire circumference of each of the adjacent holes, between a circumferential wall and the inner fin or the corrugated heat transfer surface.

  • Patent number: 10060643
    Abstract: In an air-conditioning system, during precooling or preheating control, a setting temperature is controlled such that a first temperature difference between the setting temperature and an indoor temperature is not less than a temperature difference at which a compressor performs operation, and the setting temperature is controlled to be changed to a target temperature when a second temperature difference between the indoor temperature and the target temperature is less than the first temperature difference. Since the compressor can be operated in the range from a low capacity to a medium capacity, operation efficiency of the air-conditioning apparatus can be increased, and the energy-saving operation with less power consumption can be realized. Since the operation capacity of the compressor can be readily suppressed with adjustment of the setting temperature, control is facilitated and the precooling control can be incorporated in various types of air-conditioning apparatuses.
