The automotive air conditioning system in today’s world uses the “steam Compression cooling system” that absorbs and removes heat from the inside of the vehicle. The system uses the power of the motor shaft as input power to drive the compressor of the refrigeration system. The loss of engine power for the operation of the VCR can be neglected by using another refrigeration system, i.e. a “steam-absorbing refrigeration system”. Experimental work to use the residual heat of an engine’s exhaust gases for the steam absorption refrigeration system.
