Simulation engineers encounter a significant challenge in balancing designing vehicles for optimal cabin comfort and achieving a harmonious blend of high energy efficiency and maximum battery range. ThermoAnalytics® has addressed this challenge by developing comprehensive cabin modeling techniques. These tools aid in assessing energy consumption by incorporating dynamic heating, ventilation, and cooling (HVAC) control strategies, along with features for localized comfort, such as heated steering wheels, radiant panels, and seat heating/cooling, specifically designed for electric vehicles (xEV).
Join us for our live webinar on Thursday, February 15, 2024 at 9am EST, as we briefly overview various modeling techniques employed to maximize passenger comfort. Using our TAITherm™ and Human Thermal module, we’ll explore these techniques at different design phases. Additionally, Volvo Cars will share insights into their thermal cabin model development approach in interior climate simulations. The presentation will demonstrate a cabin heat-up and cool-down scenario utilizing GT-TAITherm coupling, discussing the proposed solution’s accuracy and efficacy.
