Investigation of AC temperature variation by modifying the structure of passenger car using CFD

ABSTRACT
Air Conditioning (AC) System is used for various application, in passenger car it gives comfort to the passenger. Now a days huge advancement have been included in the AC system, especially automatic AC system plays a vital role in passenger car. These AC systems are performing well and have the capability of maintaining the temperature for long time with energy consumption. However in some vehicle the performance of these AC system is not achieved, while some vehicle achieved better performance. In later study it is found that, the structure of vehicle body also influence the performance of AC system. In some structure the AC air flow a long distance in short time and have the capability to enhance the AC performance. It is also found that the AC performance can be improved by the structure of vehicle body. In this paper, we considered an Indian small budget car. The structure of the car is slightly modified and replaced the position of the AC outlet. Then the residual temperature inside the Car is analysed with and without AC. Here the CFD is used to analysis the temperature inside car at various position.
