Abstract
The porcelainous PTC heater is used in electric locomotive cab to improve thermal comfort. In this paper, experiments were taken to test the heat transfer performance of the porcelainous PTC heater in the aspects of heat propagation distance and the interference between air inlets and outlets. The structure of the heater is optimized accordingly. In the operating condition of air outlet louvers angle 30° and air inlet louvers angle 15°, the retrofitted heater not only diminishes the mutual interference of air inlets and air outlets but also extends heat propagation distance.
