This manual begins with a comprehensive introduction to refrigeration and air conditioning. Topics covered include basic physics and major system components, including hermetic, semi-hermetic, and open compressors, as well as condensers, evaporators, and refrigerant-metering devices. It also covers fundamental concepts of electricity and magnetism as they pertain to resistors, conductors, power supplies, circuit protection devices, and transformers.
