Display of Thermodynamic Data and Informative State Charts for Online and Offline Analysis
During the development and testing of all types of air conditioning and cooling systems, physical variables such as pressure and temperature are recorded at the test bench or test vehicle – usually together with other measured signals and internal controller values. To evaluate the system configuration and the employed components and coolants, engineers working in the field of air conditioning technology need specific ways of visualizing thermodynamic data.
With the option Thermodynamic State Charts for CANape, you can now also display thermodynamic data synchronized with other measured data and generate highly informative state charts for online and offline analysis.
- Many different possible configurations for the individual design of the state chart types that are available for selection.
- Selection of thermophysical properties from the extensive TILMedia materials library from the specialist TLK-Thermo permit the use of both real gases and mixtures.
- Online calculation of the state charts and consequently also individual adaptation of the isolines
The option Thermodynamic State Charts makes it possible to generate individually designed thermodynamic state charts in just a few clicks. These simplify the online analysis of automotive cooling cycles, for example. You can choose between the following types of chart
- Pressure-enthalpy (ph),
- Pressure-specific volumes (pv),
- Pressure-temperature (pT),
- Temperature-enthalpy (Th)
- Temperature-entropy (Ts)
When configuring your chart, you can choose from a wide range of materials and even mixed materials are possible. The variables that are relevant for the displayed state chart are calculated from the measured signals, for example for temperature and pressure, on the basis of the material data. It is possible to determine missing cycle reference points.
The option Thermodynamic State Charts is supported as of CANape version 16.0, SP3.

CANape Fundamentals Workshop
Vector offers many different opportunities for you to build your knowledge of CANape and broadening it. We recommend our CANape Fundamentals Workshop as an entry-level course in CANape. It is best to take this basic course before attending advanced training courses that are also offered. However, you may register for any of the courses independently.
