  • Patent number: 9878591
    Abstract: An onboard air conditioning device wherein the heating capability of air conditioning is improved, and gas is prevented from flowing into the vehicle interior even in the unlikely event that gas is produced by a battery. In this device, one end of an air flow channel is connected to an air conditioning unit for blowing temperature-regulated air into a vehicle interior, and the other end opens into the vehicle interior. The air flow channel draws air into the vehicle interior from the opening, the intake air is passed through a battery and heated by heat exchange, and the air is then sent to the air conditioning unit. The air conditioning unit sends the air from the air flow channel to a sensible heat exchanger, and after this air undergoes heat exchange with air taken in from another channel, the air is exhausted out of the vehicle interior.

  • Publication number: 20160339762
    Abstract: An air-conditioning device for a vehicle includes a heat exchanger, a first air flow path, and a second air flow path. The heat exchanger is disposed in an inside space of an intake duct that is provided outside a vehicle interior and that has an opening. The heat exchanger includes a first heat-exchange flow path and a second heat-exchange flow path, and exchanges heat between air flowing in the first heat-exchange flow path and air flowing in the second heat-exchange flow path. The first air flow path introduces, to the first heat-exchange flow path through an opening of the intake duct, air heated by heat generated in an engine, and discharges the air to the outside of the vehicle from the first heat-exchange flow path. The second air flow path introduces, into the vehicle interior through an outside air inlet of the intake duct, outside air introduced into the second heat-exchange flow path.
