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.
