Laboratory of thermal comfort
The laboratory or its team deals with the research and development in the field of air-conditioning systems that are employed to adjust indoor environment quality of vehicle cabins or buildings; it also includes testing the system effect on thermal comfort. The main demand today is development and design of such air-conditioning systems that provide optimum thermal comfort at the lowest energy and operating costs.
Complex simulations involving a car surrounding environment have become a must for car designers. They account for the artificial global (solar) radiation along with alternating cycles of climatic load which combine dry and wet cold according to regional climate apart from the others. Such simulations enable imitation of atmospheric effects that are closely corresponding to real operational conditions of a cat. The chamber serves for testing of cars as a whole or just vehicle cabins at particular climatic conditions.
