Automotive air conditioning simulation
Conventional refrigerants like fluorocarbons are slowly phasing out due their high global warming potential and ozone depletion. As a result new alternatives are being explored. Adopting new refrigerants involves design and development of entire air conditioning equipment to suit the new refrigerant. Simcenter Amesim helps in step by step designing of each component and evaluate overall performance of system by integrating all parts.
Calsonic Kansei is leading global supplier of complete automotive air conditionings systems. Automotive air conditioning systems to be tailored according to customer requirement (complying with engine specifications, cabin space and layout etc.). Engineers leveraged multi-physics capability of Simcenter Amesim to develop each component and integrated all the sub-systems to study complete interaction between AC, Cabin and Engine. Simcenter Amesim was also used to perform a durability analysis regarding the impact of corrosion and contamination on the heat exchangers and other parts.
