Balancing Range and Occupant Thermal Comfort for Mass Transit Applications

The relationship between vehicle range and occupant comfort is an important consideration for EVs. Effective HVAC controllers are critical for maintaining the optimum occupant comfort while preserving vehicle range. Maintaining occupant comfort is more challenging for commercial vehicles; where the vehicle is large and has many occupancy configurations.

In this webinar, co-hosted with Gamma Technologies, you will learn how to accurately simulate this tradeoff using a coupled transient simulation with TAITherm and GT-SUITE. This webinar will show you how to combine a 1D loop with a fast running 3D cabin model to compare energy consumption and occupant comfort metrics during a typical vehicle drive cycle.
