Light Weight ECU / AARU
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
It is proposed develop an efficient, light weight heat actuated cooling system (HACS) for military applications. The goal is to provide 30% savings in fuel and system weight for meeting a representative demand of a forward operating unit. The key savings are from using generator waste heat to supply part or all of the heat demand of the(HACS). The ammonia absorption refrigeration units (AARU) developed by Energy Concepts Co. have demonstrated all the required HACS operating characteristics except the low weight. That is to be achieved in this project by applying advanced heat exchange technology to key AARU components.
