Abstract:
SThe purpose of this study is to present a new method for controlling a car air conditioning system, in which the air temperature can be controlled to produce any level of occupants' thermal sensation by utilizing car occupants' skin temperatures as a controlling index. In this paper, an equation for a quantitative evaluation of car occupants' thermal sensation, in steady and non-steady states, by face skin temperature and its rate of change was developed and was confirmed by experiments in an environmental chamber to be applicable for all seasons with an accuracy of ±1 in the thermal sensation voting scale we used.
