Many innovations in refrigerator design rely on microprocessors, sensors, and algorithms to control automatic defrost, variable speed, and other features. Even though these features strongly influence energy consumption, the major energy test procedures presently test only a refrigerator's mechanical efficiency and ignore the “software” aspects. We describe… (More)
