Optimization of Vehicle Warm-up Using Simulation Tools 2001-01-1705

A comprehensive simulation method is presented for the optimization of vehicle warm-up. Sophisticated one dimensional simulation methods based on network theory are used for flow simulation to limit computation time and guarantee high simulation quality. Partial integration of three dimensional flow simulation methods help to improve accuracy. Simulation sub-models for the engine, the HVAC system, and the passenger cabin are combined to simulate the warm-up process of the vehicle. This functionality is implemented in a modern software tool named KULI to support the development engineer as good as possible. Steady state and transient simulation are used to optimize the warm-up behavior.
