In today's society, when people buy household appliances, energy consumption has become a key factor, especially for large power consumers such as air conditioning. Of course, air conditioning can consume electricity when it is running, and it can also generate power consumption when it is in standby.
In general, the location of the socket of the indoor air conditioner is relatively hidden. Therefore, most users will not pull out the plug of the air conditioner even if they do not use the air conditioner. And now there is a perfect solution, even if the standby does not pull the plug, the air conditioning will not consume electricity.
As we all know, air conditioning in refrigeration often produce condensate, in general, these condensate are directly discharged from the air conditioning.Gree's new patent is to effectively use these condensate water to generate electricity and store it through a micro generator to offset the power consumption of the air conditioner in standby.
According to the patent abstract, the patent is mainly aimed at those users who do not use the air conditioner for a long time and do not pull out the plug. In order to avoid the excess power consumption generated in standby, the power generation by using condensate water.
The principle seems to be similar to hydropower.The air conditioner is equipped with a favorable condensate water tank to collect the condensate water generated during the refrigeration of the air conditioner, and a micro generator is set on the outlet side of the drain outlet or the drain channel and connected with an energy storage device to generate electricity by using the power potential energy generated by emptying the condensate water.
At present, the patent can greatly save the power consumption of the air conditioner in standby, which is a good patent for environmental protection and energy saving. But I don't know how the cost is. After all, the power generated by air conditioning standby is limited. If the cost is too high, consumers don't know whether they can accept it.
