  • Publication number: 20190257564
    Abstract: A refrigeration cycle apparatus, in which demand control is performed to adjust electric power, includes: a compressor, a driving rotation speed; a recording device that records, as data, a relationship between the driving rotation speed of the compressor and a temperature difference between a set temperature and a detected temperature, the set temperature being set as desired as a temperature control target for a temperature adjustment target, and the detected temperature being detected by a temperature detecting device disposed at a position at which a temperature of the temperature adjustment target is detected; and a main controller that, in response to a request for the demand control, calculates the temperature difference between the set temperature and the detected temperature, retrieves, from the recording device, data of the driving rotation speed of the compressor corresponding to the calculated temperature difference, and controls the compressor based on the retrieved driving rotation speed.

  • Publication number: 20190032950
    Abstract: A controller converts a detection result of an infrared sensor into overall thermal image data representing a temperature distribution within an infrared detection range of the infrared sensor, calculates, on the basis of the overall thermal image data, a floor area of an air-conditioned space, and obtains, on the basis of the overall thermal image data, floor thermal image data including a plurality of element data items each including coordinates within the floor area and a floor temperature within the floor area associated with the coordinates. The controller determines, on the basis of the floor thermal image data, presence or absence of a floor heating device in the air-conditioned space.
