1)  The pressure in refrigerant circuits with regulating air conditioner compressor is held to approx. 2 bar despite changing heat transport and differing engine speeds. This applies however only within the rated range of the air conditioner compressor; if the rated range of the air conditioner compressor is exceeded, the pressure will increase → Chapter.
2)  The temperature in refrigerant circuits with regulating air conditioner compressor is held within the regulation range of the air conditioner compressor despite changing heat transport and differing engine speeds. This applies however only within the rated range of the air conditioner compressor; if the rated range of the air conditioner compressor is exceeded, the temperature will increase. → Chapter
3)  Measured values for air conditioning systems with two evaporators
  Note
Air conditioning system compressors that do not self-regulate their load are switched off by the respective control unit via the air conditioner compressor regulating valve -N280- when an evaporator temperature less than 0°C is sensed.
In vehicles with air conditioner compressor regulating valve -N280-, the pressure on the low-pressure side is varied by activating the valve.

Vapour pressure
In an enclosed container that is not completely full, refrigerant evaporates as vapour at the surface in a quantity sufficient to form an equilibrium between vapour and liquid. This equilibrium develops under pressure and is often called vapour pressure. ...
