An on-line mathematical approach was used to model the spatio-temporal temperature distribution in the imperfectly mixed air inside a car. A second-order model proved to be a sufficiently good description of the temperature dynamics (R-2 = 0.985) of the system. Furthermore, it was possible to fully understand the physical meaning of the second-order model structure. Using this model, a proportional integral plus (PIP) climate controller was developed for a single input single output (SISO) system. The controller was able to follow a temperature level of 18-23-21degreesC at any desirable point, and to robustly react to a random local disturbance.
