Abstract:

How can Thermal Management System Evaluation be defined Performance--does it meet the demand of maximum load at worst case boundary conditions Is the TMS operational power demand hotel load disproportionately large Size--it TMS disproportionately oversized in terms of volume, weight. An evaluation metric structure could be developed that would provide a means for comparison for andor across classes of vehicles, evaluate design maturity and point toward potential issues, identify significant technological advancement.
