Developing a Vehicle Thermal Management System with Fuzzy Control Method
Vehicle thermal management system is expected to increase in-cabin thermal comfortableness in an energy-efficient way. Generally, the thermal management system operates to provide the desired comfort temperature under different driving conditions and ambient environmental conditions. In our study, the simulations of the air-conditioning system are performed to demonstrate the nonlinear dynamic process of in-vehicle temperature variation. Then, the air-conditioning system was optimized by using a fuzzy controller in order to improve its performance and energy efficiency. Results show that the air-conditioning system developed based on the fuzzy control method is an efficient method for vehicle thermal management.
