Title: Air conditioning system

Abstract: An air conditioning system includes an compressor 110 having a driving chamber 110, a suction port 116 and a discharge port 121, a first passage 107 that connects the discharge port 121 to the driving chamber 110 by opening a capacity control valve 140, a second passage 105 that connects the driving chamber 110 to the suction port 116 and a driving means 130 that can change the output discharge capacity of the compressor by changing the pressure in the driving chamber 110. The refrigerant can be released from the driving chamber 110 to the suction port 116 separately from the second passage 105 if the driving chamber reaches a predetermined high-pressure state. In such an air conditioning system, abnormally high pressure problems are overcome that utilizes a hot gas bypass heater. In particular, heating performance is improved, because high pressure refrigerant is not released from the hot gas bypass heater circuit into the cooling circuit. Further, an excessively high-pressure state in the driving chamber 110 can be prevented.
