Climate Control (Part 2)
(Session Code: TMSS200)

Room City Lights  1:30 p.m.

Climate control is a defining vehicle attribute often associated with brand image. Thermal performance and quality of climate control are both critical to customer satisfaction. While the primary objective of a climate control system is to deliver thermal comfort and occupant safety with low energy consumption, there are strong design interactions with other vehicle systems. Localized comfort, secondary fluids, air quality, controls, system sizing and HVAC consumer interface are just a few of the recent advances in this rapidly developing topic area.

Organizers - Jeffrey Bozeman, General Motors Co.; Jason Aaron Lustbader, National Renewable Energy Laboratory; Gursaran D. Mathur, CalsonicKansei North America Inc.
