EC706 is an extension of the base module EC700, energy performance calculation (both heating and cooling) according to UNI/TS 11300 Technical Specification. EC 706 works only if EC700 is already installed.
With just a few additional data input to EC700 Energy performance of buildings base module, EC706 provides a cooling load calculation according to Carrier method.
The hourly cooling load is calculated for all hours of the day from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m, for the design month and for all months from May to December.
The following contributions to the cooling load are taken into account: solar radiation, thermal transmission, ventilation, occupancy, electric appliances and other internal loads.
The following calculation results and intermediate data are displayed in the output windows:
- solar radiation load through all glazed elements, for all rooms of the building
- Thermal transmission loads through all opaque and glazed elements in all rooms of the building.
The above results can be displayed for all months and for each considered hour (from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.).
The following data are shown as well:
- ventilation thermal loads (divided into "latent" and "sensible"), occupancy internal loads (divided into "latent" and "sensible"), electric appliances load and other loads; these data are displayed for all considered hours and for all rooms of the building;
- the previously mentioned data are also displayed as totals for each thermal zone, at the peak-load hour for the room and at the peak-load hour for the zone.
