Solar Simulation for Automotive HVAC Climatic Test Cell Applications 910219

The ability to simulate radiant solar energy for automotive applications allows the evaluation of various glass coatings and tints pertaining to vehicle A/C performance. This paper covers the selection and application of CSI metal halide lamps for truer simulation of solar radiation as it applies for use in automotive climatic test cells. The criterion and technology used to maximize even distribution of solar irradiance over the body of the vehicle is also discussed.
