Modified Air Cooler with Split Cooling Unit
Abstract: Energy consumption all over the world is increasing rapidly and we need to develop ways to conserve energy for future requirement . For our comfort conditions generally we use an air conditioner, it uses a vapour compression refrigeration system. This refrigeration system consumes very large amount of power (about 1.5 KW), also the cost of this system is high. So the other option for maintaining comfort is evaporative cooler. The cost of evaporative cooler is less than that of AC; also it consumes less power than AC. The main drawback of evaporative cooler is that the air supplied by the cooler contains the large amount of humidity. Due to which when an individual sits in the air of the cooler, he/she feels stickiness on the body which is not comfortable for him/her. This project work involves the manufacturing and design of split cooling unit which will cool air but not increase its humidity. It will maintain the room at comfort conditions by recirculating the air in the room through split unit.
