--Interview with Luigi Rossi Luciani & Luigi Nalini
Chillventa 2016 provided an opportunity to highlight the benefits of Carel’s electronic valves and DC inverter technology: 40% lower energy consumption, high reliability, ideal temperature control, and optimized operating conditions to as to maximize the performance and reliability of DC compressors.
For example, Carel Power+ is a special inverter that can control compressors with permanent magnet brushless DC (BLDC) motors. Integrated into pCOsistema+, it brings significant energy savings by modulating compressor speed and consequently the cooling capacity of the unit. Variations in load are managed precisely and with constant control of the compressor envelope. This makes significant increases in unit coefficient of performance (COP) possible during operation at part load, giving higher seasonal performance factor (SPF) values.
