Title
(EN) VARIABLE TEMPERATURE SEAT CLIMATE CONTROL SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE REGULATION D'AMBIANCE POUR SIEGE A TEMPERATURE VARIABLE
Abstract
(EN)
A temperature climate control system (238) comprises a variable temperature seat (240), at least one heat pump (246), at least one heat pump temperature sensor (286), and a controller (290). Each heat pump comprises a number of Peltier thermoelectric modules (248) for temperature conditioning the air in a main heat exchanger (250) and a main exchanger fan (254) for passing the conditioned air from the main exchanger to the variable temperature seat. The Peltier modules and each main fan may be manually adjusted via a control switch (284) or a control signal. Additionally, the temperature climate control system may comprise a number of additional temperatures sensors (288) to monitor the temperature of the ambient air surrounding the occupant as well as the temperature of the conditioned air directed to the occupant. The controller is configured to automatically regulate the operation of the Peltier modules and/or each main fan according to a temperature climate control logic.
(FR)
Un système de régulation d'ambiance (238) comprend un siège à température variable (240), au moins une pompe à chaleur (246), au moins un capteur de température (286) de pompe à chaleur, et un organe de commande (290). Chaque pompe à chaleur comporte plusieurs modules thermoélectriques de Peltier (248) conçus pour climatiser l'air dans un échangeur de chaleur principal (250) et un ventilateur soufflant (254) d'échangeur principal conçu pour envoyer l'air climatisé produit par l'échangeur principal dans le siège à température variable. Les modules Peltier et chaque ventilateur principal peuvent être ajustés manuellement au moyen d'un commutateur de commande (284) ou d'un signal de commande. De plus, le système de régulation d'ambiance peut être doté de plusieurs capteurs de température auxiliaires (288) conçus pour contrôler la température de l'air ambiant autour du passager ainsi que la température de l'air climatisé dirigé vers le passager. Le contrôleur est configuré pour réguler automatiquement le fonctionnement des modules de Peltier et/ou de chaque ventilateur principal en fonction d'une unité logique de régulation d'ambiance.
