 English term or phrase: time (context!) air conditioning [talking about types of control] 1) Page title: Defrost operation "Post Defrost operation: Compressor: 2-step increase from 52 Hz to (Pc - Pe>0.4 MPa) every 20 sec. Outdoor unit fan: step 8 Four way valve: ON Four way valve: 200~400 pls ... Page title: Oil Return Operation in Heating Operation Post-oil-return operation: Compressor: 2-step increase from 52 Hz to (Pc - Pe>0.4 MPa) ***time*** Outdoor unit fan: step 8 Four way valve: ON Four way valve: 200~400 pls ... [if you wish I can send you a screenshot of this table] I think Pe and Pc are "evaporation pressure" and "condensation pressure" respectively, but what does time mean in the context, maybe the result of the formula indicated gives an "time period"???

 English translation:time (in seconds) Explanation:I think you may be right about it having something to fdo with the formula - "Frequency is expressed in hertz (Hz); a frequency of 1 Hz means that there is 1 cycle or oscillation per second" (see: http://www.ideafinder.com/history/inventors/hertz.htm). :-)--------------------------------------------------Note added at 9 mins (2004-10-16 22:49:18 GMT)--------------------------------------------------Wait a minute, up above is a similar occasion (\"every 20 sec.\")... Maybe the author just forgot to fill this one in (perhaps it should be something like \"every 20 sec.\" or \"every 10 sec.\" etc.). ;-)

 thanks!

agree  Tony M: ...with your last comment; it seems pretty certain to me that the author has omitted to fill in the repeat interval. The equation idea wouldn't work... /// OUCH! That's a DREADFUL pun, Derek :-))))
 10 mins
-> Thanks Dusty. After giving it some thought, I arrived at the same conclusion regarding the math (that would have been just too cool). ;-)

agree  zaphod: maybe the bracketed portion of the equation multiplied or divided by the time
 13 hrs
-> Perhaps. Thank you, Zaphod. :-)
