A preconditioned air system for cooling an interior cabin space of a parked aircraft includes a thermal energy storage unit, which contains a thermal energy storage medium for storing cooling capacity. During use, a ground-based air-cooling unit is placed in thermal communication with the thermal energy storage medium. The ground-based air-cooling unit draws upon cooling capacity that has been stored previously within the thermal storage medium for cooling the interior cabin space. Storage of cooling capacity is performed during off-peak demand times and...
What is claimed is: 1. A preconditioned air system for cooling an interior cabin space of a parked aircraft, comprising: a thermal energy storage unit including a thermal energy storage medium; a ground-based air cooling unit in thermal communication with the thermal energy storage medium; and, a controller for selectably switching between an air cooling mode for providing preconditioned air to the parked aircraft and a charging mode for operating the ground-based air cooling unit to store cooling capacity within the thermal energy storage medium. 2....
