The invention is an energy recovery system (20) which uses excess air emanating from an aircraft cabin (16) to drive a turbo-compressor unit (30). The outlet air from the compressor (26) of turbo-compressor unit (30) is optionally fed, either around or through heat exchanger (24), back into the aircraft cabin (16) inlet line, reducing the amount of bleed air required to power the aircraft ECS. Mass flow sensors (34) and (38) are used, via flow control valve (36) and flow control valve control unit (40), to monitor and control the amount of engine bleed a...
An aircraft environmental control system for supplying a predetermined amount of conditioned air to an aircraft cabin, comprising: an electric motor; a cabin compressor arranged to be driven by said electric motor, said cabin compressor having an outlet adapted and arranged to supply heated and pressurized air to said cabin; a supercharging compressor connected in series between a source of fresh air and an inlet of said motor-driven cabin compressor; a free-running turbine mechanically coupled to said supercharging compressor to form a turbo-compressor ...
