English term or phrase: following conditions (context!)
air conditioning

sorry for the many questions... I am having some difficulties

I'll quote the whole paragraph:

Defrosting Operation
The defrost operation is performed to solve frost on the outdoor unit heat exchanger when
heating, and the heating capacity is recovered.
[Conditions to start]
The defrost operation is started referring ***following conditions.****
��
Outdoor heat exchanger heat transfer co-efficiency
��
Temperature of heat-exchange (Tb)
��
Timer (2 hours at the minimum)
In addition, outdoor heat-exchange co-efficiency is derived from Tc, Te, and the compressor
load.


...I don't think it actually refers to "conditions" i.e. values that trigger the control but to parameters that are checked in order to decide whether to start the control or not...right?

agree  Derek Gill Franßen: Yes, I kept waiting for the really difficult question: What does this author mean with 'referring'? (that would have been my very first question, to which I unfortunately do not have an answer). I guess this is that question in disguise.
