Cabin Comfort Simulation

GT-SUITE offers simulation solutions that model and optimize cabins to satisfy comfort requirements and operational temperature constraints

Cabin Comfort SimulationCOMPREHENSIVE, EASY-TO-USE SOLUTION

Models built in GT-SUITE enable rapid definition and calibration of cabins, allowing various design studies, such as component layout choices in the A/C loop, or assessing the effect of different window glazings on the overall HVAC system performance. These cabin models can be used to provide boundary conditions to air conditioning loops with varying levels of zonal resolution.

Cabin Comfort SimulationCO-SIMULATION WITH GT-TAITHERM

GT-SUITE offers the ability to create cutting-edge models by cosimulating with ThermoAnalytics’ TAITherm and GT-TAITherm, a special version of TAITherm packaged directly inside GT-SUITE. With these cosimulations, real-time capable 3D cabin comfort models can be created which are used standalone or directly implemented into a full GT-SUITE integrated thermal model.

Cabin Comfort SimulationAPPLICATION HIGHLIGHTS

  • Easy to use cabin models of varying resolutions depending on goals
  • Pre-defined geometries for most common vehicle classes
  • Real-time capable, 3D high resolution (up to 100,000 volumes) cabin models
  • Seamlessly connect cabins into other subsystems (i.e. A/C, Vehicle Cooling) modeled in GT-SUITE for feedback
  • Integration with ThermoAnalytics’ TAITherm tool for improved thermal accuracy and passenger comfort predictions
  • Integration with 3D CFD Tools (GT-CONVERGE, Fluent, STAR, OpenFoam, and other codes)

Advanced Features

  • Optimize compressor control strategies based on zonal temperatures
  • Easily integrate into other GT-SUITE models (i.e. A/C evaporator air circuit)
  • When cosimulating with TAITherm, import available CFD flow fields and replace GT-SUITE’s flow solution
  • Utilize TAITherm’s built-in thermal manikin model to predict comfort of the occupants
  • Design vehicle, aircraft, and other types of cabins
  • Run drive cycles (i.e. NEDC) at real-time speeds
