|1. (WO2014196337) COMFORTABLE TEMPERATURE CONTROL DEVICE UTILIZING HEAT FLUX SENSOR|
|Title:||COMFORTABLE TEMPERATURE CONTROL DEVICE UTILIZING HEAT FLUX SENSOR|
This comfortable temperature control device is used for a vehicle, and is equipped with: a temperature change body (20), the temperature of which changes when electricity is applied thereto; a heat flux sensor (10) that outputs a sensor signal corresponding to a heat flux; a thermal diffusion layer (40) that is provided over the heat flux sensor (10); and a control unit (2) that regulates the temperature of the temperature change body (20) by applying electricity to the temperature change body (20). The thermal diffusion layer, heat flux sensor, and temperature change body are arranged in said order inside of a seat (200) installed inside the vehicle, staring from a seat surface (201a) side with which a passenger comes into contact when the passenger is seated in the seat. A sensor signal that corresponds to a heat flux between the surface and the temperature change body is output from the heat flux sensor to the control unit. The control unit regulates the application of electricity to the temperature change body such that the heat flux between the surface and the temperature change body attains a predetermined value.
