Embodiments of a modular air conditioning (AC) unit include a base unit, a blower mounted to the base unit, and at least one heat exchanger module assembled to the base unit and communicatively coupled to the blower to form a modular AC circuit. The modular AC unit also includes a controller communicatively coupled to at least one component of the modular AC circuit and adapted to independently control operation of each of the components of the modular AC circuit.
1. A modular air conditioning (AC) unit, comprising: a base unit;a blower module mounted to the base unit and configured to provide air to a grounded aircraft;at least one heat exchanger module that is separate from the blower module, assembled to the base unit, and communicatively coupled to the blower module to form a modular AC circuit, wherein the at least one heat exchanger module comprises at least one stage of compressors; anda controller communicatively coupled to the at least one heat exchanger module of the modular AC circuit and configured to ...
