Hybrid Thermal Mixing (HTM®) systems are designed to provide natural ventilation and hybrid ventilation incorporating mixed tempered air for winter periods. In addition, the systems have the ability to provide secure night time cooling, and boosted levels of ventilation during summer. The HTM systems are designed to work in conjunction with natural ventilation and can be used in single sided or cross flow ventilation strategies.
The ability to model Monodraught HTM® systems in the Virtual Environment is available as part of the VE 2017 release. The HTM® performance components have been added to the library of predefined 3D component representations of Monodraught systems that can be dragged easily from a catalogue of products onto a building model constructed within the IESVE. The HTM® systems can then be assessed in an open and transparent process so that users can be confident in the performance of their chosen systems.
The HTM® components are available within the IESVE ApacheHVAC Application. When the componet has been added to the building model, the IESVE analysis tools can be used to provide the user with:
