Comprehensive utilization of Exhaust Heat of Engine and Solar Energy is a revolutionaer technique. There is seldom literatures focusing on this scope. The mechanical compressor using chemical refrigerant principle is the core driving component of traditional car air conditioner. However, the issues such as energy-consuming, transmission efficiency, pollution etc. remains a great challenge. A new driving scheme is put forward in this paper, in which primary exhaust heat sources is used to drive the air conditioner. There requires quite a few moving parts in this new scheme. If the low power engine is mounted in the car, additional solar energy can be combined to drive the air conditioner. The principle of the new air-condition system and its structure are illustrated in this paper.The automatic control system for this new Air-condition System driven by combination of Exhaust Heat of Engine and Solar Energy is described in detail as well. This new system is energy-conserving, environment-protective, low-carbon, and high efficient. It has a promising application prospect.
