Energy Management for Electric Vehicle: Energy Demand for Cabin Comfort 2020-37-0031
The rapid development of CO2 reduction policies pushes an equivalent effort by the OEMs to design and produce Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) in order to lower the global CO2 emission of its fleet. The main effort has been applied primarily to the electric traction architecture (electric traction motor and battery energy storage). Furthermore, extending BEV autonomy range continues to be deficient and this is even more critical when the customer operates the air conditioning system to reach and maintain the cabin comfort. The aim of this work is to present vehicle level design solutions, that reduce the energy demand by the air conditioning system, allowing the vehicle to increase it’s range.
