The trend towards electrification brings new challenges for the vehicle energy management. Heating and air conditioning systems play an important role to ensure battery cooling/heating and cabin thermal comfort.
Developing thermal management strategies at an early design stage will reduce power consumption and thus will improve the overall performance and vehicle range.
HVAC system simulation
Benefits of HVAC system simulation:
Better understanding of the impact of the HVAC system on the cabin thermal comfort and vehicle range
Sizing and choice of different thermal components
System optimization and associated control design
Early assessment of different thermal management strategies
