  • Publication number: 20080113600
    Abstract: A buffeting noise reducing system includes: a duct configured for air to pass therethrough, with an air intake at one end disposed inside the vehicle, and a blower assembly at the other end, including an air outlet, a blower fan for blowing air through the air outlet, and a blower motor for operating the blower fan. A control system may drive the blower motor when a noise generation condition is satisfied. The noise generation condition may be based on an opening state of at least one wind inflow port, such as a sunroof or window, and/or on the vehicle speed. A buffeting noise reducing method includes detecting an opening state of a wind inflow port and/or detecting a vehicle speed; judging whether a noise is generated or not, based on information detected in the detection step; and discharging air in a passenger compartment to outside if noise is generated.
