An aircraft cabin air-conditioning system, of the type that uses engine bleed air, regulates the amount of tapped bleed air so as to be just sufficient to maintain a desired cabin pressure, thus minimizing the fuel burn allocated to the aircraft\s environmental control system. The air-conditioning system cools the bleed air by passing it first through a heat exchanger 50 of a circulating glycol/water coolant loop 55 for heat transfer to a coolant and then through an evaporator 60 of an electrically-driven vapor-cycle loop 56 for supplemental heat transfe...
A fuel conserving air-conditioning apparatus for an aircraft cabin that operates effectively with a supply of air bled from a turbo-fan engine at minimal pressure and temperature, comprising: flow control means for receiving engine bleed air and for passing a constant volumetric rate of flow of such bleed air; a coolant loop including an air-to-coolant heat exchanger means for receiving bleed air passed by said flow control means and for transferring heat therefrom to a coolant so as to cause a partial cooling of the bleed air, heat sink means for receiv...
