    Abstract

    The personal air conditioning system is used in the battery electric vehicle instead of the traditional one and the experiment validated that this system can make passengers feel comfort after four minutes. All the system can only consume electric power 338.8 W, which is less than the traditional air conditioning of cabin. A simplified 3-D N box vehicle cabin model was created to simulate the thermal distribution under this system by using the CFD analysis and the results of calculation have good agreement with the experiment recording.
