Kumar Reddy, J., Deopa, S., Sharma, A., and Aggarwal, P., "Impact Of Condenser Opening Area On A/C Performance of the Automotive HVAC System," SAE Technical Paper 2015-01-0368, 2015, doi:10.4271/2015-01-0368.
Bumper opening area projected on condenser to total condenser core area is referred to as condenser opening area. The condenser opening area plays a vital role in A/C Performance of vehicle particularly during idling and initial cooling of vehicle. This paper presents detail study on effects of condenser opening area on A/C performance. Based on theory, the effect of condenser opening area is studied and it is validated by experimental results. Depending on these results an optimum value of condenser opening area required for best A/C performance is concluded.
