HVAC systems in automobiles, irrespective of propulsion systems, have become an intrinsic part of automobile cabin comfort today. Global warming is causing extreme seasonal swings in ambient temperatures, increasing the need for effective and efficient HVAC solutions for automotive cabin comfort. The HVAC system must quickly ventilate, cool, and heat the passenger cabin to a comfortable temperature with minimal exertion of power demand on the propulsion module. The scenario is especially critical in the case of EVs considering the current limitations on battery technology, charging times, and charging infrastructure.
