Assumptions for HVAC (air conditioner) use?

Recommended Posts

How is HVAC use considered in ABRP?  It seems like if it is considered, ABRP under estimates the energy required for the car's air conditioner


Just to play around, I tried setting the outside temperate to:

75F => Got to my destination with 44% (baseline)

50F => Got to my destination with 39% (makes sense because it takes energy to heat the car)

100F => Got to my destination with 43% (Doesn't make sense, I would except the HVAC use to make this number more than 1% lower than the baseline)

999F => Got to my destination with 70% (?!?!? Obviously just for funnies, but the calculation clearly breaks down here)
