LOAD CALCULATION AND SYSTEM EVALUATION FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLE CLIMATE CONTROL

This paper presents an analysis of the applicability of alternative systems for electric vehicle (EV) heating and air conditioning (HVAC). The paper consists of two parts. The first part is a cooling and heating load calculation for electric vehicles. The second part is an evaluation of several systems that can provide the desired cooling and heating on EVs. These systems are ranked according to their overall weight. The overall weight is calculated by adding the system weight and the weight of the battery necessary to provide energy for system operation. The paper also includes a calculation on how the battery energy storage capacity affects the overall system weights and the selection of the optimum system.
