Thermal Energy Management in Vehicles comprehensively covers thermal energy management systems and components in vehicles. It covers four main areas: the thermal management of internal combustion engines; mobile air-conditioning; thermal management of hybrid electric vehicles and electric vehicles; and waste heat recovery on internal combustion engines. Simulation models are described and proposed for most of the components and systems introduced in the book. State of art and emerging technologies are also covered and future industry trends are discussed.
Written by authors with experience in academia and industry, Thermal Energy Management in Vehicles, is a comprehensive reference for researchers, practitioners and graduate students in automotive engineering. It is also accompanied by a website hosting models and examples.
