This article aims to describe a modular system level modeling approach for the thermal behavior of an automotive cabin. The model is parameterized with geometric and physical data. At the end a set of 6 parameters is used to calibrate the model with two measurement data sets: one for a passive heat up and active pull down and one for a cold heat up. The procedure can be used as a recipe for developing own models of the same kind which may be used in integrated thermal management studies.

Keywords: automotive cabin; calibration; thermal simulation; air conditioning; integrated thermal management
