Progress in the Optimized Application of Simulation Tools in Vehicle Air Conditioning 2001-01-1699
The paper focuses on the usage of simulation tools during the development of vehicle air-conditioning systems. The integration of simulation is explained at every stage of the process. It differentiates at which step the 3-D simulation properties are needed and where the advantages of 1-D tools decide its use. For each demand the most targeting way of calculation has to be chosen, facing properties like precision, hardware needs and especially modeling as well as calculation time along to the tightened development schedule. Examples are given from system layout to detailed optimization.
