Design and verification of vehicle climate comfort

The combination of Etteplan’s expertise in automotive climate and our testing facility ensures our customers best possible know-how to develop and verify optimal climate in the vehicle.

Etteplan has a long track record in providing turnkey projects and expertise services within the climate technologies. This has enabled Etteplan to gather unique knowledge of climate comfort and to turn this expertise into tangible customer benefits: savings in development time and costs.

In recent years Etteplan has also built up extensive knowledge of climate control in the buses. Bus climate, a highly advanced discipline by itself, places high demands on very specific knowledge.

An emerging and demanding discipline is the climate in electric and hybrid vehicles and battery conditioning systems, where Etteplan has acquired profound knowledge in numerous development projects.

Simulation, calculation and performance testing of climate and cooling systems

Etteplan provides system and component simulation in A/C and other cooling systems. Models are used to optimize systems, both on component and system level, starting early in the development process.

Etteplan can provide measurement for simulation services also in our own labs. The model analysis can be used to optimize pump and compressor outputs, control parameters, heat exchanger design, etc.

Climate lab

Etteplan’s climate lab in Gothenburg, Sweden, offers a wide range of facilities including HVAC Test benches, A/C component test bench, climate chambers, a secure in-house project office and a workshop facility.

Our A/C test rig, built on over 20 years of experience in our own lab, is equipped with unique software for complete analysis and evaluation of advanced climate systems.

Etteplan is building a new state-of-the-art HVAC test facility that will be operational in December 2013. It will provide independent test results and analysis with short lead time between test set-ups. Volvo Cars has signed a 5-year contract and will use the facility for testing and verification of its future climate systems. The facility will be available for all Etteplan’s customers.

Test equipment for HVAC systems

Etteplan provides unique expertise and test equipment for complete testing and analysis of HVAC systems. The equipment is well also suited for today’s refrigerants r134A and E.G. 1234YF.

We can offer a complete turnkey test facility for performance and service-life testing for complete HVAC systems or component parts.

Etteplan provides also training services for customer’s testing personnel. Our facility can be customized to meet specific customer needs and requirements.

Our unique equipment is also designed for testing complete A/C systems for vehicles, without adding extra pipes or hoses. The evaporator, compressor, condenser (gas cooler) can be positioned on x, y and z axes, which allows testing to be performed with the same hoses and pipe routing as in the car.
