The design program for heat pump systems from Valentin Software has been expanded again to support system designers, installers and engineers around the world.
The most important plants can be mapped
As before, air, brine and water heat pumps can be calculated and simulated. Air, geothermal probes (up to 100 meters deep), groundwater and geothermal collectors installed in the ground can be used as heat sources.
In addition to the heat performance factor, the program calculates the annual energy yields and makes statements about cost-effectiveness and emissions reduction compared to conventional systems. The software presents all of the results graphically. These include the annual course of the relevant temperatures, the useful heat and the electrical energy as well as the weekly heat performance factor.
Systems can be variably parameterized
When designing a system, the user can choose between various predefined system configurations that have proven themselves in practice. In addition to the monovalent and monoenergetic systems with heat pump and solar thermal system, bivalent systems with additional heat generators are included. Thus, it is possible to simulate existing systems with condensing boilers, compact heating systems and other boilers, with the addition of a heat pump. New plants with a conventional heat generator as backup can now also be simulated and optimized. In addition to heat pumps, all heat generators can of course also be selected from a comprehensive and up-to-date database of nearly 1,600 products.
