Experience of operating air cycle air conditioning systems in ICE3 trains (in German)


Reports how process and total equivalent warming impact analyses formed the basis for developing an air cycle air conditioning system for the German ICE3 high speed train. The system is based on a closed-loop overpressure process with two-stage compression and single-stage expansion. Describes and discusses the results of the successful testing of the system, which has demonstrated that air cycle air conditioning systems can be used effectively instead of the vapour cycle air conditioning systems previously applied in trains.
