About the project

The project is devoted to the development of an innovative Integrated Vehicle Thermal System based on the integration of vehicle thermal systems to improve the on board thermal management and the energy efficiency. The major project contents are:   

  •  Dual loop air conditioning: one loop to transfer the cooling power and one loop to reject the heat

  •  Two-levels temperature heat rejection system: one temperature to reject the high temperature heat (e,g. engine waste heat) and one temperature to cool locally the vehicle auxiliary systems

  •  Innovative heat exchangers: new generation of compact fluid-to fluid heat exchangers and application of innovative technologies for fluid-to-air heat rejection

  • Use of innovative coolants (e.g. Nanofluids): to improve the heat rejection and redesign the heat exchangers
