DAIKIN ALTHERMA SIMULATION v3.7.6
The Daikin Altherma Simulation App provides for every specific application and appropriate heat pump selection, taking into account the needs of the building and specific climate data.
As well as a full material selection, the app provides detailed information for the installer and the end-user, on the expected outcome of the specified Daikin Altherma unit for its specific application and climate:
The Daikin Altherma Simulation App can be used as an indication for dimensioning Daikin Altherma heat pump systems. The app works with following assumptions.
Personalising the input data:
Under ‘Preferences’, following input data should be reviewed for every new simulation.
Efficiencies of gas and oil boilers:
The efficiency values for gas and oil boilers used for comparative calculations are adjustable under ‘Preferences’. The default efficiencies are chosen to reflect the minimum requirements of the European Boiler Efficiency Directive 92/42/EC for low temperature boilers.
Domestic warm water production:
The Daikin Altherma system can optionally be combined with a sanitary warm water tank for the preparation of domestic warm water. The type of tank and its capacity can be selected in the simulation for the investment cost calculation.
The reversible version of the Low Temperature Daikin Altherma system can provide cooling. The energy consumption for cooling is included in the energy and cost calculations when a reversible system is selected and cooling operation requirements and design parameters/conditions are defined.
