No-frost refrigerator temperatures regulation with variable speed compressors
In the last years a great interest has been rising in new technologies development aiming at reducing power consumption and/or allowing a better control of it.
This article gives a brief introduction to the project, developed in Indesit Company with the collaboration of Altran Italia, which aims at the realization of a new no-frost refrigerator compartment temperature control system. With such a system, based on continuous regulation of a variable speed compressor and fan, benefits such as reduced power consumption, improved temperature regulation as well as noise reduction are expected. In particular, the physical characteristics of a refrigerator system and its relevant actuators are described together with the design activities, the main characteristics of the resultant control algorithm and, finally, some experimental results.
