Improvements in Heater, Defroster and Emissions Performances Using a Latent Heat Storage Device 940089

Here we present a latent heat storage device which is used to provide “quick/supplemental” heat to the vehicle's conventional heating system. First, we present data from actual in-vehicle cold weather tests. Data are presented for heater and defroster performance tests, emissions tests and cold start tests after extended soaks. Secondly, heater performance predictions are made using a computer simulation program. Finally, the actual heater performance results are compared with the computer simulation.
