Air Condition for Electric Vehicles

The Task

Evaluating the electrical energy consumption of an air conditioning system in an electric vehicle.

The Challenge

To simulate the complete air conditioning system with a focus on the electrically driven components, such as the compressor and fan.

The Solution

ASM Electric Components supports the simulation of a complete air conditioning system with a compressor and fan that are driven by an electric motor.

The model for the thermal simulation of the vehicle interior is used to determine the temperature in the vehicle cabin. This value depends on the ambient temperature, the manipulation via the air conditioning system, the fan, and the vehicle's material parameters. A soft ECU is used to control the vehicle’s cabin temperature.
