Description

The present disclosure relates to the technical field of air conditioning, and in particular to an air conditioning system with two-stage compression.

BACKGROUND

As a kind of commonly used electrical appliance, air conditioners have become more widely used, and accordingly, requirements on their performances are becoming higher and higher. Taking commercial air conditioners as an example, in some special application scenarios, it is required to control an evaporation temperature of the air conditioning system to be very low. For example, the temperature in low-temperature devices such as large-sized cold storage or low-temperature box needs to be controlled at −30° C. to −40° C. or even lower. In this case, a single-stage compressor cannot meet the requirements since the compression ratio and pressure difference are limited to a certain extent. Generally, in this situation, a solution in which a two-stage compressor or a multi-stage compressor is used in cooperation with a low-temperature refrigerant is adopted. The refrigerant is compressed twice by the two-stage compressor so that an evaporation temperature of −65° C. to −75° C. or even lower may be obtained.

Although the two-stage compressor or the multi-stage compressor solves the above problem to some extent, the following problems also inevitably arise: firstly, the two-stage compressor is bulky and an internal structure thereof is complicated, resulting in high manufacturing cost and reduced product competitiveness; secondly, existing two-stage compressors have a low energy efficiency during operation.

Accordingly, there is a need in the art for a new air conditioning system with two-stage compression to solve the above problems.

For those skilled in the art, the specific meanings of the above terms in the present disclosure may be interpreted according to the specific circumstances.

First, referring to FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, an air conditioning system with two-stage compression according to the present disclosure will be described. FIG. 1 is a system diagram of an air conditioning system with two-stage compression according to the present disclosure, and FIG. 2 is a cyclic pressure-enthalpy diagram of an air conditioning system with two-stage compression according to the present disclosure.

As shown in FIG. 1, in order to solve the problems of high cost and low energy efficiency of an existing multi-stage compressor 1, an air conditioning system with two-stage compression (which may be referred to as an air conditioning system hereinafter) of the present disclosure mainly includes a compressor 1, a condenser 2, a throttling element 3 (such as an electronic expansion valve), and an evaporator 4 connected in sequence, and these components constitute a conventional air conditioning circulation loop in which refrigerant is filled. In particular, the air conditioning system further has a pressurizing unit and a sub-cooling unit. The pressurizing unit is disposed between the compressor 1 and the condenser 2, and the pressurizing unit is configured to be capable of converting natural energy into mechanical energy to pressurize refrigerant discharged from the compressor 1 for a second time. The sub-cooling unit includes a sub-cooling inlet 61, a first sub-cooling outlet 62, and a second sub-cooling outlet 63. The sub-cooling inlet 61 is in communication with a liquid outlet 22 of the condenser 2, the first sub-cooling outlet 62 is in communication with an inlet of the throttling element 3, and the second sub-cooling outlet 63 is in communication with an exhaust port 11 of the compressor 1.

As shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, when the air conditioning system is operating, the refrigerant flowing out of the liquid outlet 22 from the condenser 2 is divided into two parts (state point 456), wherein a first part is cooled in a way of throttling thermal expansion under the action of the sub-cooling unit cools, and reduces the temperature of a second part by heat exchange. The first part of the refrigerant after the heat exchange comes to the exhaust port 11 of the compressor 1 through the second sub-cooling outlet (state point 63); the second part of the refrigerant, after exchanging heat with the first part of the refrigerant, enters the evaporator 4 for evaporation after being further throttled by the throttling element 3 (state point 671); the refrigerant after evaporation enters the compressor 1 for a first-time pressurizing. then is discharged through the exhaust port 11 of the compressor 1 (state point 12), and is mixed with the first part of the refrigerant that comes to the exhaust port 11 of the compressor 1 (state point 23); the mixed refrigerant enters the pressurizing unit, and after the pressurizing unit converts the natural energy into mechanical energy so that the mixed refrigerant is pressurized for a second time (state point 34), the refrigerant enters the condenser 2 again, thereby completing one cycle.

As can be seen from the above description, since the pressurizing unit is configured to be capable of converting natural energy into mechanical energy to pressurize refrigerant discharged from the compressor 1 for a second time, at the same time of utilizing the natural energy to achieve two-stage compression, the air conditioning system with two-stage compression of the present disclosure can also improve the energy efficiency of the two-stage compression. Specifically, when the air conditioning system is operating, the compressor 1 firstly pressurizes the refrigerant for a first time, and after the refrigerant that has been pressurized for the first-time is discharged from the compressor 1 and is mixed with a part of the refrigerant from the sub-cooling unit, the pressurizing unit utilizes the natural energy to provide a driving force for a second-time pressurizing to convert the natural energy into mechanical energy and utilize the mechanical energy to pressurize, for a second time, the refrigerant that has been pressurized for the first-time, so that the air conditioning system of the present disclosure can achieve a second-time pressurizing without additional energy consumption, which not only improves the performance of the air conditioning system, but also achieves zero energy consumption of the second-time pressurizing.

Further, by disposing a sub-cooling unit in the air conditioning system, the air conditioning system of the present disclosure can also achieve sub-cooling of the refrigerant, so that at the same time of lowering the evaporation temperature, a cooling capacity and a cooling efficiency are also improved. Specifically, by communicating the sub-cooling inlet 61 of the sub-cooling unit with the liquid outlet 22 of the condenser 2, communicating the first sub-cooling outlet 62 of the sub-cooling unit with the inlet of the throttling element 3, and communicating the second sub-cooling outlet 63 of the sub-cooling unit with the exhaust port 11 of the compressor 1, when the air conditioning system is operating, the refrigerant discharged from the liquid outlet 22 of the condenser 2 is divided into two parts by the sub-cooling unit, wherein one part is cooled by being evaporated into a gaseous refrigerant due to throttling, so that the temperature of the other part is lowered and subcooled to reduce the refrigerant temperature. The subcooled liquid refrigerant flows out of the first sub-cooling outlet 62, passes through the throttling element 3 and enters the evaporator 4 for evaporation and refrigeration, thereby achieving lower evaporation temperature and lower exhaust temperature of the compressor 1; whereas the uncooled gaseous refrigerant is discharged to the exhaust port 11 of the compressor 1 through the second sub-cooling outlet 63, and then enters the pressurizing unit with the refrigerant discharged from the compressor 1 for a second-time pressurizing to improve the cooling capacity and cooling efficiency.

The air conditioning system with dual-stage compression according to the present disclosure will be described in detail below with reference to FIG. 1.

As shown in FIG. 1, in a possible embodiment, the natural energy is marine energy, for example a source of water that can flow such as river, stream, lake and sea. The pressurizing unit includes a receiver 51, a converter 52, and a pressurizer 53. The receiver 51 is connected to the converter 52, the converter 52 is connected to the pressurizer 53, and the pressurizer 53 is disposed between the exhaust port 11 of the compressor 1 and the intake port 21 of the condenser 2. The receiver 51 is capable of receiving an ocean energy and converting the ocean energy into mechanical energy, and the converter 52 is capable of transmitting the mechanical energy to the pressurizer 53, so that the pressurizer 53 utilizes the mechanical energy to pressurize the refrigerant for a second time. Specifically, the receiver 51 may be a hydro-turbine having an impeller and an impeller shaft; the converter 52 may be a bevel-gear direction converter having an input shaft and an output shaft; and the pressurizer 53 may be an energy accumulation pressurizer having a suction port 531, a discharge port 532, a scroll, and a rotating shaft. The impeller shaft of the hydro-turbine is connected to the input shaft of the bevel-gear direction converter, such as by welding, key connection or coupling connection; the output shaft of the bevel-gear direction converter is connected to the rotating shaft of the energy accumulation pressurizer, such as also by welding, key connection or coupling connection; the suction port 531 of the energy accumulation pressurizer is in communication with the exhaust port 11 of the compressor 1, and the discharge port 532 of the scroll compressor is in communication with the intake port 21 of the condenser 2. Therefore, when the water stream is flowing (such as when the seawater is at a rising tide or a falling tide), the impeller of the hydro-turbine is driven to rotate. The rotation of the impeller drives the input shaft of the bevel-gear direction converter to rotate, and the input shaft of the bevel-gear direction converter drives the output shaft of the bevel-gear direction converter to rotate. The output shaft further drives the scroll of the energy accumulation pressurizer to rotate. When the scroll rotates, the refrigerant is sucked in from the suction port 531 and compressed, and is then discharged from the discharge port 532.

With continued reference to FIG. 1, in a possible embodiment, the sub-cooling unit may be an economizer, an inlet of the economizer is connected to the liquid outlet 22 of the condenser 2, a first outlet of the economizer is connected to the throttling element 3, and a second outlet of the economizer is connected between the exhaust port 11 of the compressor 1 and the suction port 531. When the air conditioning system is operating, the refrigerant discharged from the liquid outlet 22 of the condenser 2 is divided into two parts when passing through the economizer, wherein one part is cooled by being evaporated into a gaseous refrigerant due to throttling, so that the temperature of the other part is lowered and subcooled to reduce the refrigerant temperature. The subcooled liquid refrigerant flows out of the first outlet of the economizer, passes through the throttling element 3 and enters the evaporator 4 for evaporation and refrigeration, whereas the uncooled gaseous refrigerant is discharged to the exhaust port 11 of the compressor 1 through the second outlet of the economizer, mixes with the refrigerant discharged from the compressor 1 and then enters the energy accumulation pressurizer together with the refrigerant for a second-time pressurizing.

In the above preferred embodiment, by converting the marine energy into mechanical energy, that is, by using the marine energy to provide a driving force for the pressurizer 53, the air conditioner of the present disclosure can make full use of natural resources. Especially, the resource of flowing water in a seaside city can be used to perform a second-time pressurizing on the refrigerant. In this way, not only a significant pressurizing effect is achieved, but also the need for an external power source is eliminated during the pressurizing process, thereby also greatly saving energy consumption. In addition, as compared with the multi-stage compressor 1, all the components of the pressurizing unit of the present disclosure are standard parts, and the assembly method is simple and reliable, so the purchase cost is relatively reduced, and the competitiveness of the product is improved. Through the configuration of the economizer, the present disclosure can also achieve a lower evaporation temperature and a lower exhaust temperature of the compressor 1 to improve the cooling capacity and cooling efficiency of the air conditioning system. As compared with other compressors 1, since the energy accumulation pressurizer as selected has no reciprocating mechanism therein, and the pressurizing can be achieved merely by the rotation of the scroll, so its structure is simple, the volume is small, the weight is light, and the reliability is high. In addition, it has high efficiency and low noise in a range of cooling capacity in which the present disclosure is adapted, which can improve the user experience. The hydro-turbine and the bevel-gear direction converter not only each have a simple structure, but also have a high durability, which can improve the operating stability of the air conditioning system.

It should be noted that the above preferred embodiments are only used to explain the principle of the present disclosure, and are not intended to limit the scope of protection of the present disclosure. Those skilled in the art can adjust the above arrangements without departing from the principle of the present disclosure so that the present disclosure can be applied to a more specific application scenario.

For example, in an alternative embodiment, there is not only one arrangement of the pressurizing unit. Those skilled in the art can adjust the arrangement of the pressurizing unit without departing from the principle of the present disclosure so that the present disclosure can be applied to a more specific application scenario. For example, the pressurizing unit may not include the converter 52, but includes the receiver 51 which is directly connected to the pressurizer 53.

As another example, in another alternative embodiment, the form of the pressurizer 53 is not invariable, as long as the pressurizer 53 is arranged such that the refrigerant can be effectively pressurized by using the driving force provided by the natural energy without the need for an external power supply. For example, a plunger structure may be adopted for the energy accumulation pressurizer, and the converter 52 drives the plunger to reciprocate to achieve the pressurizing of the refrigerant; or the pressurizer can also be realized by modifying the existing compressor. For example, it can be realized by modifying a scroll compressor in the following way: detaching its driving part and power part, leaving only a scroll chamber and a scroll, and connecting a rotating shaft of the scroll to an output shaft of the bevel-gear direction converter. Therefore, the purpose of using ocean energy to provide a driving force for the scroll is achieved so that the refrigerant is pressurized for a second time. Similarly, for the receiver 51, in addition to the hydro-turbine, any form of devices capable of converting a marine energy into mechanical energy can be applied to the present disclosure.

For another example, in another alternative embodiment, in addition to the bevel-gear direction converter, a worm-and-gear direction converter may also be used for the converter 52. In this case, the input shaft of the worm-and-gear direction converter is connected to the impeller shaft of the hydro-turbine, and the output shaft of the worm- and-gear direction converter is connected to the rotating shaft of the energy accumulation pressurizer.

For still another example, in another alternative embodiment, the arrangement of the sub-cooling unit may also be adjusted. For example, the sub-cooling unit may also be a flasher, a subcooler, or the like. Alternatively, the sub-cooling unit may be omitted in the air conditioning system. All these changes do not deviate from the principle of the present disclosure, and therefore should fall within the scope of protection of the present disclosure.

For still another example, in another alternative embodiment, in addition to the ocean energy, the natural energy may also be other energies that can be collected in nature, such as wind energy. Correspondingly, when the natural energy is wind energy, the receiver 51 can be a wind turbine, and an impeller shaft of the wind turbine may be directly connected to the rotating shaft of the energy accumulation pressurizer or connected to the rotating shaft through the converter 52, etc., which can also achieve purpose of providing a driving force for the pressurizer 53 without the need for an external power source so that the refrigerant can be pressurized for a second time.

The use of wind energy as the natural energy greatly expands the application scenarios of the present disclosure, so that the air conditioning system of the present disclosure can be applied to areas rich in wind energy in addition to marine energy, thereby improving the competitiveness of the products of the present disclosure.

Heretofore, the technical solutions of the present disclosure have been described in connection with the preferred embodiments shown in the drawings, but it can be easily understood by those skilled in the art that the scope of protection of the present disclosure is obviously not limited to these specific embodiments. Those skilled in the art can make equivalent changes or replacements to the related technical features without departing from the principle of the present disclosure. The technical solutions after the modification or replacement will fall within the scope of protection of the present disclosure.
