Capacity & Performance Testing of Packaged Air Conditioners

Packaged air conditioners are self-contained air conditioning units compressing a refrigeration system and an air-handling system, usually (but not necessarily) connected to ducting for distributing the conditioned air at different desired locations. These units are usually made in capacities upwards of 10,000 W (about 3 TR) and may consist of one or more assemblies, which are designed to be used together. Indian Standard IS. 8148-1976 covers packaged air conditioners in the range of 3 to 15 TR, which also happens to be the range commonly manufactured in India.
