An automotive air conditioning system is investigated in detail and experimented. The temperature of ambient, the evaporator and condenser and the speed of the compressor are varied and the performance of the system is investigated. Cooling load, compressor power consumption, refrigerant mass flow rate, COP value, fluctuation of the minimum and maximum system pressures are analyzed, the results are presented in graphical form and optimum operation conditions are determined.
