A high efficiency environmental control system uses air exhausted from a pressurized cabin to cool compressed air entering the cabin. Air exhausted from the cabin may flow directly from the cabin through a heat exchanger which cools the compressed air entering the cabin. Alternatively, air exiting the cabin may flow through a turbine which expands and cools the air prior to passing through the heat exchanger. The turbine may be used to drive a compressor to provide the compressed air to the cabin. Supplemental power to drive the compressor may be provide...
[ What is claimed is:] [3.] An environmental control system for a pressurized cabin having an inflow port for supplying air to the cabin and an outflow port for exhausting air from the cabin, the system comprising:a heat exchanger having a first inlet and corresponding first outlet in fluid communication with the outflow port of the cabin, the heat exchanger also having a second inlet and corresponding second outlet in fluid communication with the inflow port of the cabin, wherein air exhausted from the cabin passes through the first inlet and outlet of ...
