Modular Design HVAC

Balancing space, efficiency, performance, and durability of HVAC systems is a complicated multi-objective optimization challenge and requires exhaustive iterations to reach an ideal design. Moreover evolving refrigerant requirements and infrastructure changes, such as retire ozone-depleting refrigerants with neutral ones, on-site power generation, waste recovery system, filtration and air quality monitoring, and cost-effective reversible heat pumps add additional research burden on HVAC manufacturers and building developers.

To effectively handle complexity and retain efficiency during the engineering process. Siemens Digital Industries Software delivers a modular approach to creating a database of standard components, system architecture, scalable layouts and deploys it across the broader organization.

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems often consist of several components including the compressor, valves, pumps, fans, air handling units (AHUs), and fan coil units (FCUs) with each having individual performance characteristic curves. Ensuring optimal performance of the HVAC system over a broad-spectrum of operating loads imposes specific component customization and sizing challenges. Customizing an individual component’s design is cost-prohibitive.

The integrated multi-physics solutions of Siemens Digital Industries Software enables HVAC manufacturers to build uniquely customizable products and scalable techniques using a modular approach. Using the modular approach, the HVAC manufactures can capitalize on simulation experience and deploy the methodology to various engineering centers thereby standardize permissible configurations, mitigate risk, eliminate repetitive tasks, and excel at product innovation.
