DR WAWZYNIAK described at length the challenges of using heat pumps in electrified vehicles, but said a side-effect of autonomous technology – even lower levels that require an alert driver behind the wheel – is making life easier for engineers working on ways of efficiently heating the cabin of a battery-powered car. Carmakers would love Continue reading WHY AUTONOMOUS DRIVING WILL ULTIMATELY FAVOUR YF OVER R744

ELECTRIFIED and self-driving vehicles are presenting curve-balls to suppliers that design, engineer and make thermal management and HVAC systems. This is having an impact on refrigerant choices, because while R1234yf is great for conventional air-conditioning and R744 is better for heat pumps in low ambients, YF comes into its own again when scavenging heat from Continue reading SECOND COMING
