The AirConditioning Library for Simulation of Advanced Vehicle A/C Systems
Published May 20, 2007 by Institution of Mechanical Engineers in United Kingdom
The AirConditioning Library and the simulation tool Dymola, both based on the standardized, freely available modelling language Modelica, have been selected by the German automotive OEM as the preferred tool for model development and exchange for the A/C system in passenger cars. The paper will give an overview of the AirConditioning Library and present application examples from its use at DaimlerChrysler. The library contains a complete range of component models and templates of typically used and proposed A/C system architectures, and all currently used, as well as new and proposed, refrigerants for automotive applications. The modelling detail is appropriate for component selection, system architecture design, system integration for overall vehicle thermal management and climate control design.
