Heat Exchange Ventilator Simulation Modeling Software
A heat exchange ventilator is mainly used in the cooling field for doing heat exchange from the fluid to the air in a space heated by a boiler. The heating of the space may be for space heating or for space cooling. In the former case, the fluid cooling is done through a heat exchange unit which includes a heat exchange ventilator for efficiently cooling off the heat coming from the boiler. In the latter case, the heat exchange ventilator is installed between the furnace and the space so that a space conditioner or a heat pump can be fitted to the boiler for efficiently heating the air circulating within the space. This method of air conditioner is more cost effective because it requires only a heat exchange unit rather than both heat exchange units. This saves money and increases the efficiency of the system.
This solves the problems of heat exchange ventilators that were commonly found in prior art systems. These prior art systems were designed for a single heat exchange unit that is separated from the furnace. This is done so that the heat exchangers does not create turbulence inside the heat exchange ventilator and also does not allow hot flue gases from the furnace to enter the heat exchange chamber. Although the heat exchange ventilator is separated from the furnace, it still causes issues with the operation of the heat exchangers because it causes the heat exchange chamber to freeze up when there is high humidity. In addition, this frozen up heat exchangers can cause condensation inside the furnace.
The heat exchange ventilator consists of two main parts, the inlet port and the outlet port. The inlet port is connected to the air source through a single duct and the outlet port is connected to the indoor air supply. The inlet port and the outlet ports can be designed in any manner desired by the present inventors. However, they generally are designed so as to make certain that the air from the indoor air supply is warmed up before it enters the heat exchange chamber.
The heat exchange ventilator also has another important function. This is to regulate the amount of outside temperature that enters the house through the exhaust port and the supply air passage. The outside temperature will determine the amount of energy required to heat up the water inlet or the furnace and to heat up the exhaust air passage. As soon as the temperature outside reaches a critical level, the supply air passage also becomes a problem because it cannot keep up with the increasing outside temperature.
To solve this problem, it is useful to have some type of computer simulation modeling software program. These are available on the Internet and can be easily downloaded for free. The simulations can be done at the client's site or at the client's premises. The advantage of this type of software is that, it allows the simulation modeling software to be used for a wide variety of problems and can be easily downloaded to analyze the results obtained. One benefit of the bi-directional flow heat exchange ventilator simulation modeling software is that it will save money.
In some systems, there are two different air flows coming into the heat exchange device. The first is a constant stream of air coming in through the supply port. The second air flow comes in through the intake port and sends heat out through the exit port. This can be solved by installing the partition plates at both the inlet and the outlet ports.
