Evaluation of Thermal Environment in Vehicles for Occupant Comfort Using Equivalent Temperature of Thermal Manikin during Start-Stop Function with Energy Storage Evaporators 2018-01-0059

In recent years, start-stop systems have been implemented by many OEMs for improvement of fuel economy. When the engine stops, the occupant comfort typically deteriorates. Hence, the climate and fuel economy engineers are struggling to combine the passenger comfort and fuel economy. Especially in a vehicle cabin where the thermal environment becomes unsteady and highly non-uniform due to a start-stop. It is difficult to adapt any comfort evaluation index that have already been well established for a stationary/uniform space in building type environment in comparison to a vehicle cabin interior. The existing standard of ISO-14505-2 does not consider this for vehicle cabin interior condition. Hence, the authors have developed the occupant’s comfort prediction method under highly non-uniform condition and unsteady conditions and have established a new methodology [1].
