The Modelica Air Conditioning Library is used to design, analyze and optimize automotive air conditioning systems during early design stages.
It comes with both ready-to-use refrigeration cycle templates and a wide range of components to create non-standard configurations.
Predefined steady-state experiments and an interface to Microsoft Excel enable users to conduct experiments to calibrate and validate design options and component settings. A dynamic system model provides the means for investigating charge optimization and control design.
The library can be used as an integrated part of energy management design for both conventional and hybrid vehicles by combining with libraries for electric power, batteries and powertrain. Liquid cooling models comprising heat exchangers and other coolant equipment are available as a free add-on.
The Air Conditioning Library is a proven tool for air conditioning system design and virtual prototyping in the automotive and aerospace industries. The components are rapidly assembled and substituted to build and test novel systems. Control strategies can subsequently be developed either in Modelica or using your preferred tool.
A calibrated model build with the Air Conditioning Library offers new opportunities for system and component evaluation. Virtual experiments enhance system understanding and provide insight in phenomena and component interactions that can be difficult to access on a test rig.
The models in Air Conditioning are designed for dynamic simulation. They enable users to study transient behavior of air conditioning systems in the event of a quick cool-down of a passenger cabin.
Air Conditioning Library is a product of Modelon and is distributed by Modelon and partners worldwide.
