Title (EN) TWO-POINT AND MULTIPLE-POINT SPOT HEATING AND COOLING
(FR) CHAUFFAGE ET RAFRAÎCHISSEMENT PONCTUELS À DEUX POINTS ET À POINTS MULTIPLES
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus and methods for producing thermal comfort using two point or multipoint heating or cooling that is applied to portion of a human body part to produce a warm or cool sensation over a larger area than that where the heating or cooling is directly applied. The body is induced to heat or cool itself by adjusting its neutral temperature setpoints. Increased warming perception from two-point, multipoint, and switching point stimulation causes downward adaptation in the neutral skin temperature of the user. Because spot heating and cooling sources operate at higher temperature differences from the skin than do area sources, they create a stronger perceived thermal sensation for the same power consumption. Point heating or cooling, rather than whole-area heating, can result in power savings and cost savings while improving occupant comfort.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil et des procédés de production d'un confort thermique à l'aide d'un chauffage ou d'un rafraîchissement à deux points ou à points multiples qui est appliqué à une partie d'un corps humain de façon à produire une sensation chaude ou fraîche sur une zone plus grande que celle où le chauffage ou le rafraîchissement est appliqué directement. Le corps est amené à se réchauffer ou à se rafraîchir en ajustant ses points de consigne de température neutre. Une perception accrue du réchauffement à partir d'une stimulation à deux points, à points multiples et à points alternés provoque une diminution de la température neutre de la peau de l'utilisateur. Puisque les sources de chauffage et de rafraîchissement ponctuels fonctionnent à des différences de température plus élevées par rapport à la peau que les sources de zones, elles créent une sensation thermique perçue plus forte pour la même consommation d'énergie. Le chauffage ou le rafraîchissement ponctuel, plutôt que le chauffage de l'ensemble de la zone, peut permettre des économies d'énergie et de coûts tout en améliorant le confort de l'occupant.
