Title
(EN) TEMPERATURE COMFORT DEVICE HEATER CONTROLLER METHOD AND SYSTEM
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME PERMETTANT DE REGULER DES ELEMENTS CHAUFFANTS DE DISPOSITIFS DE CONFORT THERMIQUE
Abstract
(EN) The invention relates to a method of, and system for, controlling an in-vehicle temperature comfort device heater (8) by obtaining from a user a desired temperature setting (3) for the comfort device and obtaining a current temperature of the comfort device, subtracting the current temperature from the desired temperature yielding a temperature difference, and multiplying this temperature difference by a numeric calibration factor to produce a PWM signal for controlling the duty cycle to the comfort device heater (8).
(FR) L'invention se rapporte à un procédé et à un système permettant de réguler un élément chauffant d'un dispositif de confort thermique, intérieur à un véhicule, qui consiste à obtenir d'un utilisateur un réglage de la température souhaitée pour le dispositif de confort et à obtenir la température courante du dispositif de confort, à soustraire la température courante de la température souhaitée aux fins de l'obtention d'une différence de température, et à multiplier cette différence de température par un facteur d'étalonnage numérique pour produire un signal PWM permettant de réguler le cycle de travail de l'élément chauffant du dispositif de confort.
