The simulation of complex systems, e.g. a vehicle air conditioning system, can be simulated on different levels. The simulationtool Dymola, which has been embedded into the CATIA 3DS-environment, offers a wide range of possibilities. Several commercial available third-party libraries can be used to simulate thermodynamical processes, systems and components.
SynErgy Thermal Management uses the HumanComfort-Library by XRG-Simulation to simulate the influence of different air conditiong system designs, control strategies and components on the passengers' thermal comfort.
