Description

The indoor temperature measured by the sensor is an important basis of air conditioner control strategy. Accordingly, the position of the sensor influences power consumption and the stability of indoor temperature control. This paper aims to study the influence of different sensor positions on air conditioner power consumption and indoor temperature stability. An experiment is conducted, which has 20-position circumstances, including different height, horizontal distance, and vertical distance from the air conditioner. Furthermore, Fluent is used to simulate the situation that sensor is in rooms with different sizes and air conditioner direction. An optimal sensor position searching model is developed, and an ideal position is proposed. A correction parameter is presented to adjust the sensor in original position. This study provides theoretical and practical support for improvement of the operation of air conditioners.

Research for the Optimization of Air Conditioner Sensor Position Based on the Room Spatial Parameter
