Title:
Feasibility of Using Air Curtains in Urban Buses 
Abstract:
In tropical countries, the HVAC system of electric vehicles consumes a significant amount of electric power reducing their driving range. This consumption is exacerbated for urban electric buses due to an additional thermal load caused by the infiltration of heat through the doors of the vehicle at bus stops with increased dwelling duration. Therefore, it is of paramount importance to develop methods that minimize thermal loads in the cabin and hence increase the efficiency of the vehicle. One m...    »
