EnergyAE worked with South East Water (SEW) and Stiebel Eltron to develop a simulation tool for assessing the performance of an integral heat pump water heater system.
- South East Water supplies 350 million litres of water every day to 1.5 million people across the Melbourne region.
- Steibel Eltron has a rich 90-year heritage in developing innovative hot water and heating products.
- EnergyAE is helping these two companies develop new water heating solutions to ensure the delivery of clean, hot water to homes in the Melbourne South-East.
The EnergyAE Heat Pump Simulation Tool provides the user with a simple interface to input custom product specifications, water load profile data, weather conditions and set initial tank temperatures. The user can then simulate the system, using the TRNSYS engine, but without having to deal with the complexities of the TRNSYS software itself. Simulation results are automatically uploaded to the interface, allowing detailed analysis of the performance. Finally, the user is able to print a pre-formatted report straight to PDF with all of the key results.
