La presente tesi è il risultato di uno stage svolto nel reparto Innovazione di Maserati S.p.A. Studia la possibilità di aumentare il comfort termico sui veicoli e allo stesso tempo, il risparmio energetico per un mondo "più verde".
The present thesis is the result of an internship carried out in the Innovation department of Maserati S.p.A. It studies the possibility to increase the thermal comfort on luxury vehicles and, at the same time, energy saving for a “greener” world. Energy management in modern vehicle is a crucial issue, especially in the case of electric or hybrid vehicles, where different energy sources and loads take part in the vehicle running. On the one hand, air conditioning is an important energy load which must be thoroughly considered because it can constitute a significant percentage of energy demand. On the other hand, most of the automotive manufacturers are focusing on increasing human thermal comfort aboard, because it is one of the most important factors when vehicular thermal environments are designed. I would like to introduce this thesis as a study of the estimation of the HVAC energy absorption aimed to reduce the pollution emissions. I have taken into consideration different tools, such as new types of glazing, new insulating materials and different interior materials. In addition, I would like to highlight the importance of the thermal comfort for the car user, considering the current market request for an always more comfortable drive. The developed model is based on the theoretical heat transfer balance and the radiation treatment equations. Through simplified boundary conditions and steady approach, the results obtained, at different configuration of the veihicle, are compared among them to obtain the best consumer’s comfort and spend less money. This comparison can demonstrate the possibilities to reduce the vehicle’s ancillary load and improve its energy consumption. This could allow the use of a smaller air conditioner by saving energy during a long route.
