Research tool for use in the steady-state simulation and design analysis of heat pumps and air conditioners. The program can be used with most of the newer HFC refrigerants as well as with HCFCs and CFCs. The standard vapor-compression cycle is modeled with empirical representations for compressor performance and first-principle region-by-region modeling of the heat exchangers.

Capabilities:

HVAC System Selection and Sizing, Parametrics and Optimization
