Advanced Thermal Management of a Light Duty Diesel Vehicle 2013-01-0546
The paper presents a thermal management development capability and approach that was put in place to understand the relative benefit of various thermal components, layouts and control strategies. The use of the approach on a modern diesel powered vehicle is given. Thermal performance along with associated fuel economy improvements are shown over various test cycles including the FTP and US06. Results are given for a GT-Suite simulation as well as on vehicle.
