Air conditioning system plays a vital role in providing comfort to the passenger while travelling which is considered to be a major factor which drives the growth of railway air conditioning system market over the forecast period. Railway air conditioning system is generally used to control ventilation, humidity and temperature in railways. To provide indoor air quality and thermal comfort in railways, heating, ventilation and air conditioning system are used. AC and DC powered heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system are installed in different rolling stocks such as high speed trains, tram’s, coaches, locomotives, metro’s, passenger trains, light rail passenger vehicle and subway rail vehicles. Air conditioning system in railway are not only installed to provide comfort to the passenger, but it is also used to cool down the batteries and other parts of railway. The different components of railway air conditioning system are alternators, evaporator, condenser, filters, thermostats, pre cooling unit, compressor, regulator box, etc.

Railway air conditioning system can be Standalone type, roof mounted type and side mounted type. Among these, roof mounted type is expected as the most preferable railway air conditioning system over the others as it requires less space for installation and avoid congestion.
