The electric air conditioning system is in relation to the comfort of the electric vehicle. In this paper, the influence of several parameters on the electric air conditioning system was studied. The model of the air conditioning system was developed based on the thermodynamic and the performance testing results of the components. The model was coded on the Matlab/Simulink platform and simulated. The simulation results show that the ventilation ratio and the indoor blower speed could be used to remove the heat entered the cabin in a short time. Therefore, these two parameters could be used as the major control parameters for the developing thermostat controller.
