Compressor load optimization
One of the main issues for automakers in today’s green economy is ensuring their vehicles have the highest fuel economy possible in order to deal with constantly increasing fuel costs. The improved fuel efficiency of vehicles provides money savings for customers, reduced carbon dioxide emissions, less dependency on oil, and lastly increased energy sustainability. The compressor load optimization project aims at improving the efficiency of the refrigerant cycle inside of a vehicle leading to improved fuel economy, reduced emissions, and lastly an extended comfort time in stop/start vehicle. This research project will provide technological innovation for the partner organization, which can be utilized for the benefit of the company on any current or future products. Not only will the partner organization benefit from the technology involved, but also customer benefits that will be induced from the results of this innovative research.
