Jon Juszkiewicz, Marek Lehocky

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, you will learn how to accurately simulate this tradeoff using a coupled transient simulation with TAITherm and GT-SUITE.

Exhaust systems are still a primary heat source in passenger vehicle underbody and underhood thermal systems.  The Exhaust Stream part type in TAITherm provides a quick and easy way to simulate exhaust system temperatures and predict the amount of radiation that will then heat surrounding components. This webinar will demonstrate using the Exhaust Stream in TAITherm to perform a transient heat transfer analysis.
