MODELICA - Air Conditioning Library

Accelerate the design, optimization and verification of air-conditioning systems, from the early design phases through to detailed control system design and implementation.

Rapidly Model & Simulate Climate Control Systems

The Modelica Air Conditioning Library delivers model templates of typical automotive air conditioning cycles, model interaction dialogues and detailed information about the components that make the library convenient and easy-to-use. Library components can be freely connected and the templates can be easily modified to model and analyze non-standard configurations such as parallel evaporators. Key features include:

  • Easy-to-use state-of-the-art air conditioning model templates.
  • Support for transient and steady state simulations of Air Conditioning systems.
  • Source code provided so that models can be easily adapted and extended to meet specific needs
  • Support for multiple coolants including R134a, R744, R404a, & R1234yf
  • Ability to import & integrate Simulink models
  • Support for the Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) standard

Air Conditioning & Hybrid Vehicles

For all types of hybrid vehicles, electrically driven compressors are often considered for improving overall energy management and reducing the impact of the air conditioning system on the vehicles fuel consumption. Dymola allows you to combine an electric drive model from the Smart Electric Drives Library, or a conventional power-train from the Powertrain Library, with a cabin model and air-conditioning cycle from the Air Conditioning Library. Cooling of batteries for all types of hybrid vehicles can also be modeled and integrated with the air-conditioning system.

Integrate Multiple Engineering Disciplines

The Air Conditioning Library is part of the powerful CATIA Systems Engineering solution. The library can be used with both Dymola and CATIA V6 Dynamic Behavior Modeling, either on its own or with other Modelica Libraries, to model and simulate complex systems that can span multiple engineering disciplines.

Benefits
  • Significantly reduce systems development time due to fast and accurate systems modeling and simulation
  • Models can be easily adapted and extended to meet specific needs
  • Rapid integration of user-defined models
  • Compatible with all other Modelica libraries e.g. Smart Electric Drives and Powertrain libraries.
