Thermal and energy calculations

  • Calculating the system yield and the primary energy demand within ASHRAE specifications
  • Thermal transmittance calculation of any structure and opaque glass windows horizontally and vertically in accordance with the UNI EN ISO 10077-1
  • Check ASHRAE for the summer minimum calculation of the walls
  • Inspection of the surface and interstitial condensation of structures according to UNI EN ISO 13788:2013
  • Calculation of winter heat losses with dispersants structures statistical overview (UNI EN 12831:2006)
  • Air handling units sizing for thermal ventilation systems with primary energy demand calculation for the service of ventilation and energy losses in both conduit systems, both in heat transfer fluid distribution systems
  • Calculation of peak summer and winter thermal loads. The program implements the transfer functions method (TFM) depicted in ASHRAE Handbook 1985-2005.
  • Cooling loads and heat extraction rate calculations with single environment simulation
  • calculation of the air treatment units for each individual zone to simulate the following types of plant:
    • Primary air
    • All air with the mixture (from 0 to 100%)
    • Post heating at the room level
  • The simulation results provide particularly:
    • Peak maximum power of the single room (sizing the fan-coil or diffuser)
    • Contemporary maximum power for the zone and building (sizing the chiller)
    • Sizing of the air handling unit:
      • Battery power (cold, pre- and post-heating)
      • Adiabatic humidifier
      • Airflow fan
  • Calculating the electricity produced by the photovoltaic (ASHRAE)

  • Automatic detection of thermal bridges and implementation schedule of thermal bridges enforced by CESTEC SPA, ANCE Lombardy and the Politecnico di Milano
  • Automatic detection of thermal bridges and exchanging borders
  • Archive materials compiled according to UNI EN ISO 10456:2008, UNI EN ISO 10351:2015, and fully customizable
  • Verification of law compliance with rapid setting of unmet checks
  • Dynamic labels summary of all the romms characteristics
  • Production of calculation reports and the technical report in RTF format
  • Costs summary of the calculation results
  • Ability to export drawings
  • Preparing the APE (Energy Performance Certificate)

  • Caricamento automatico delle letture dei singoli ripartitori mediante file in formato CSV
  • Calcolo dei locali ad uso collettivo
  • Automatic sizing of the radiators according to UNI 10200 or to UNI EN 442-2
  • Possibilità di considerare diversi sistemi di contabilizzazione invernale fissandoli sulle varie unità immobiliari
  • Possibilità di considerare contatori di calore centralizzati per singolo servizio
  • Possibilità di scelta del calcolo del consumo involontario da prospetto 10 UNI 10200 (forfettario) oppure analitico UNI/TS 11300

Solar thermal

  • Collector array sizing calculation (F-CHART method and conforms to UNI 8477)
  • Check the performance of an existing collector field (ASHRAE)
  • Subsystem calculations are intended only for the production of domestic hot water (DHW), the sole production of heating, and combined systems
  • Defining the ACS requirements according to ASHRAE technical specification
  • Covered demand fraction by solar energy is calculated with reference to the users needs and with reference to the primary energy needs, combined with the facility to fuel-powered generators or heat pumps
  • Project management through a wizard in sequential windows
  • Calculation method to preset schemes or system components manual selection
  • Pre-built and customizable database for solar collectors, storage tank, generators, and piping
  • Cost/benefit economic analysis
  • Determination of the project's most important economic indicators (NPV, RI,TRa) related to the installation costs, electricity and fuel, maintenance, financial costs, and gross tax deductions the tax on interest and for redevelopment energy (Budget 2007)
  • Print of the project's technical and economic report in RTF format
