Foreword

This document (EN 15316-3-2:2007) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 228 Heating systems in buildings, the secretariat of which is held by DS. This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by April 2008, and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by April 2008. This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the European Free Trade Association (Mandate M/343), and supports essential requirements of EU Directive 2002/91/EC on the energy performance of buildings (EPBD). It forms part of a series of standards aimed at European harmonisation of the methodology for calculation of the energy performance of buildings. An overview of the whole set of standards is given in prCEN/TR 15615. The subjects covered by CEN/TC 228 are the following: design of heating systems (water based, electrical etc.); installation of heating systems; commissioning of heating systems; instructions for operation, maintenance and use of heating systems; methods for calculation of the design heat loss and heat loads; methods for calculation of the energy performance of heating systems.

Heating systems also include the effect of attached systems such as hot water production systems. All these standards are systems standards, i.e. they are based on requirements addressed to the system as a whole and not dealing with requirements to the products within the system. Where possible, reference is made to other European or International Standards, a.o. product standards. However, use of products complying with relevant product standards is no guarantee of compliance with the system requirements. The requirements are mainly expressed as functional requirements, i.e. requirements dealing with the function of the system and not specifying shape, material, dimensions or the like. The guidelines describe ways to meet the requirements, but other ways to fulfil the functional requirements might be used if fulfilment can be proved. Heating systems differ among the member countries due to climate, traditions and national regulations. In some cases requirements are given as classes so national or individual needs may be accommodated. In cases where the standards contradict with national regulations, the latter should be followed.

Scope

This European Standard is part of a set of standards covering methods for calculation of system energy requirements and system efficiencies of heating systems in buildings. In particular this European Standard is one of a number of standards dealing with domestic hot water systems. The scope of this specific part is to standardise the methods for calculation of: thermal losses from the domestic hot water distribution system; recoverable thermal losses for space heating from the domestic hot water distribution system; auxiliary energy of the domestic hot water distribution system.

These values are input data for calculation of the overall energy use according to prEN 15603 and EN 15316-1. This European Standard specifies the: inputs; calculation methods; outputs.

5.1

General

The domestic hot water distribution system is given as one or more pipes installed between the heat generator or hot water storage vessel (if present) and the user outlet or outlets. The domestic hot water distribution system may include a circulation loop. The most basic system, for which this method is applied, consists of a single distribution pipe connecting a single heat generator, or a storage vessel, and a user outlet (e.g. tap or shower head). This is shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1 Basic domestic hot water system components If the building is used for different applications or is divided between different users, the method can be applied to the entire building or to part of the building, as required. The calculation method can also be applied to a building or to part of a building, where there is more than one domestic hot water system installed. For the

11

UNI EN 15316-3-2:2008

EN 15316-3-2:2007 (E)

purposes of these calculations, the buildings are considered in terms of the number of zones into which they are divided and the number of domestic hot water systems within these zones. A zone is defined as a building or part of a building, for which the energy need for domestic hot water is to be calculated.

5.2

The simplest installation is a single system within a single zone (see Figure 1).

5.3

This installation corresponds to a zone in which the energy need for domestic hot water is provided by means of more than one domestic hot water generator. In a domestic building, this may be one generator providing domestic hot water to a bathroom and another generator providing domestic hot water to a kitchen (see Figure 2). In non-domestic buildings, the installation depends on the building sector.

Figure 2 Domestic hot water system, single zone and multiple systems Calculation of system losses shall be carried out separately for each system. The total system loss for the zone is the sum of the system losses of each system. Each distribution system shall be kept separate in order to define the heat load on the heat generator along with the corresponding domestic hot water demand.

12

UNI EN 15316-3-2:2008

EN 15316-3-2:2007 (E)

5.4

This installation corresponds to a building split into a number of separate zones, for which there is a common single domestic hot water system, e.g. a block of flats with a central boiler (see Figure 3).

Figure 3 Domestic hot water system, multiple zones and single system The total system loss is calculated for the system, and the total thermal loss is the sum of thermal losses of each zone.

6.1

Total distribution thermal losses

For the calculations, the distribution system is considered divided into two parts: a circulation loop, if present, and the individual distribution pipes to the user outlet or outlets. The thermal losses of each part are calculated separately. The total thermal loss part as follows:

QW ,dis ,ls of the distribution system is calculated by adding the thermal losses of each

is the sum of thermal loss from the individual distribution pipes of the distribution system (no circulation loop), MJ/day;

UNI EN 15316-3-2:2008

EN 15316-3-2:2007 (E)

is the thermal loss from the circulation loop of the distribution system (collective part), if present, MJ/day.

6.2

6.2.1

General

Where there is no circulation loop, thermal losses occur due to the energy used for heating up the pipes and fittings of the distribution system. This contributes also to a delay in reaching the required minimum temperature of the domestic hot water at the user outlet. When the desired temperature is reached in the distribution system, thermal losses from the distribution system occur during the period of draw-off of domestic hot water. The heat content within the distribution system, after a draw-off of domestic hot water has been completed, is lost to the surrounding environment, i.e. heat content of the hot water in the distribution system and thermal capacity of the material of the distribution system. Insulation on the distribution pipes reduces the heat loss rate during a hot water draw-off and thus reduces the total thermal losses during a hot water demand period. Further, insulation on the distribution pipes reduces the heat loss rate regarding the heat content within the distribution system, after a hot water draw-off has been completed. The effect of the insulation in this respect depends on the time periods between consecutive draw-offs. If the time period is sufficiently long, pipe insulation does not affect the thermal loss of the heat content and the hot water temperature drops to the ambient temperature around the pipe. If the time period is short, pipe insulation reduces the thermal loss of the heat content, as the hot water temperature does not drop to the ambient temperature around the pipe. Thus, depending on the tapping pattern, the reduced thermal losses and effect of insulation should be taken into account. Different methods for calculation of thermal losses are described in the following. The methods differ in the detail of the calculations and the input data required. The method applied can be chosen based on the data available and the objectives of the user. The level of detail chosen should reflect the level of detail used in defining the domestic hot water needs. A national annex may specify which calculation method should be used for different types of buildings. A national annex may also specify which calculation method is applicable for the purpose of energy labelling or any other specific use. The calculations are based on daily domestic hot water needs. 6.2.2 Thermal losses from pipes based on dwelling area

This method is a simplified method relating the thermal loss of individual distribution pipes only to building floor area and, thus, detailed knowledge of the domestic hot water distribution system is not required for this method. This method can only be applied in a limited number of situations and is usually restricted to domestic buildings with a domestic hot water distribution system that does not involve a circulation loop. If this method is applicable, details for the calculation and limitations for its use shall be given in a national annex. Although detailed knowledge of the domestic hot water distribution system is not required, the pipe lengths shall be kept to a minimum. The maximum acceptable distribution pipe length for this method may be given in a national annex.

6.2.3

Thermal losses from pipes based on pipe lengths and number of tappings per day

This method takes into account the thermal losses from the pipes and the thermal losses from the water within the pipes. It is necessary to know the pipe diameters and pipe lengths for each individual section of the domestic hot water distribution system. This method is applicable only for domestic hot water distribution pipes that are not part of a circulation loop. The thermal loss is calculated by:

Details on this method shall be given in a national annex. It is possible to take into account other parameters, e.g. the thermal capacity of the pipes. An example is described in Annex A. It is possible also to include the thermal losses from the user outlets in this method. A reduction of thermal losses in case of short intervals between the tapping cycles is not taken into account in this calculation method. If this is to be considered, details shall be given in a national annex, and for this purpose, the effect of pipe insulation on thermal losses shall be taken into account. An example is described in Annex A. 6.2.4 Thermal losses from pipes based on pipe lengths and distribution efficiencies

This method is based on estimates of proportion of the heat energy reaching the user outlets for different pipe lengths. A distinction is made between supplies to kitchens and supplies to bathrooms. Detailed knowledge of the domestic hot water distribution system is not required for this method, however, an approximation of the length and diameter of each of the delivery pipes shall be made. The proportion of heat energy reaching the user outlets is tabulated against pipe lengths and diameters. This method is applicable only for domestic hot water distribution pipes that are not part of a circulation loop. If this method is applicable, details for the calculation and suitable tabulated values shall be given in a national annex. A table of default values is given in Annex B.

6.2.5

Thermal losses from pipes based on pipe lengths and tapping profiles

This method is based on estimates of the thermal losses expressed as a proportion of the domestic hot water energy demand at the user outlets. Data on domestic hot water energy demand is required for this method, but detailed knowledge of the domestic hot water distribution system is not required, as long as sufficient data is available to estimate the average pipe lengths. Additionally, data is required on the location of the domestic hot water distribution system, i.e. as to lengths of pipe sections installed within the heated space and lengths of pipe sections installed outside the heated space. This method is described in Annex C. Details on this method, including the equivalent energy loss factors, shall be given in a national annex. 6.2.6 Thermal losses from pipes based on pipe lengths and average temperature

This method is based on the same calculation principles as for the thermal losses from a circulation loop based on a physical approach (see 6.3.3). The only difference is the average temperature of the domestic hot water taken into account, which is normally lower for the individual section of the domestic hot water distribution system than for the circulation loop. Appropriate values shall be given in a national annex. An example is given in D.2. 6.2.7 Heat energy lost due to wasted hot water

For most uses, a minimum domestic hot water temperature is required at the user outlet, before it is considered useful. The energy content of the water tapped, until the water at the user outlet has reached the minimum required temperature, is wasted and is considered as a thermal loss. These thermal losses may be reduced if there is a high demand on the distribution system, i.e. a large number of hot water draw-offs occur over a short time period. If the domestic hot water demand is defined in accordance with EN 15316-3-1 on the basis of tapping programs, the conditions for the minimum domestic hot water temperatures and flow rates are given. If the domestic hot water performance of the generator unit is measured in accordance with EN 13203-2, the energy content of the wasted domestic hot water is also measured. If the domestic hot water performance of the generator is not measured in accordance with EN 13203-2, the energy content of the wasted domestic hot water may be calculated. A national annex should give details on this method and the assumptions to be made. 6.2.8 Time periods

The weekly, monthly or annual thermal losses are obtained by multiplying the thermal loss per day by the appropriate number of days.

6.3.1

General

For a circulation loop, there are thermal losses from the pipes during the whole period of water circulation, i.e. not restricted to domestic hot water draw-offs. 6.3.2 Thermal losses from circulation loop based on pipe length and a fixed value of heat loss

A fixed value of heat loss from the circulation loop may be assumed. This method is applicable if exact design of the domestic hot water distribution system is not available or the pipe insulation thickness is not known. The value should be given in a national annex. If a national annex is not provided or does not include this value, a default value is given in D.1.

6.4

The thermal losses from the circulation loop and from individual distribution pipes are increased by the thermal losses through fittings, i.e. valves and flanges, as well as thermal losses through pipe hangers. These thermal losses are estimated by introducing an additional equivalent pipe length. If these additional thermal losses are to be included in the analysis, details shall be given in a national annex.

6.5

User outlets

The domestic hot water is supplied to the user through a user outlet, e.g. a tap, showerhead or similar device. Depending on the design and the material of construction, the user outlet absorbs heat energy during the supply of hot water and causes a delay in reaching the required minimum hot water temperature at the user outlet. Depending on the characteristics of the user outlet, the user needs more or less time to adjust the required temperature (e.g. thermostatic user outlets). These delays increase thermal losses in the domestic hot water distribution system. The additional heat energy lost due to wasted hot water (according to 6.2.7) may be combined with the thermal losses due to user outlets and, thus, no additional calculation is required to take user outlets into account. If the thermal losses from user outlets are to be considered separately, the need for this calculation shall be indicated in a national annex. The basis of the calculation method is given in Annex E. These thermal losses are dependent on the number of hot water draw-offs. This dependence shall be detailed in the national annex. Default values for the thermal losses from different types of user outlets may be used in place of a calculation. If default values are applicable, these shall be given in a national annex.

is the auxiliary energy consumption for the ribbon heater (MJ/day); is the auxiliary energy consumption for pumps (MJ/day).

Where ribbon heating or trace heating is applied to reduce the heat losses, it is assumed that the auxiliary energy consumption for the ribbon heater is equal to what the heat losses from the pipe would have been without the heater. The ribbon heater does not contribute to the generation of hot water. The heat losses compensated by the ribbon heater shall not be added to the heat losses of other individual parts of the domestic hot water

7.3.1

General

Electrical energy is required for the pump to overcome the hydraulic losses within the domestic hot water distribution system. A simplified method or a detailed calculation method may be applied to estimate the auxiliary energy consumption for pumps in domestic hot water distribution systems. The proportion of the auxiliary energy consumption for a pump, which is transferred as heat to the circulating water, should be given in a national annex. If a national annex is not provided or does not include this value, the default value given in Annex F may be applied. For the purpose of the calculations, the auxiliary energy recovered as heat to the circulating water is subtracted from the total thermal losses of the circulation loop. 7.3.2 Simplified method

The auxiliary energy consumption for the pump may be estimated from the pump power rating as follows:

where Ppmp tpmp is the power rating of the pump (kW); is the pump running time (h/day).

(MJ/day)

(8)

Values for tpmp should be given in a national annex. If a national annex is not provided or does not include this value, a default value is given in F.1.

19

UNI EN 15316-3-2:2008

EN 15316-3-2:2007 (E)

The weekly, monthly or annual auxiliary energy consumptions are obtained by multiplying the auxiliary energy consumption per day by the appropriate number of days. 7.3.3 Detailed calculation method

If the design of the domestic hot water distribution system is available, a detailed calculation method can be applied. The auxiliary energy consumption for the pump can be calculated from the hydraulic energy requirement and the performance of the pump. The general calculation of the auxiliary energy consumption for the circulation pump is: WW ,dis, pmp = WW ,dis,hydr * eW ,dis, pmp where (MJ/day) (9)

WW ,dis ,hydr

eW ,dis , pmp

is the hydraulic energy requirement (MJ/day); is the performance coefficient for circulation pump (-).

Details of the method are given in F.2. The weekly, monthly or annual auxiliary energy consumptions are obtained by multiplying the auxiliary energy consumption per day by the appropriate number of days.

The calculated system losses are not all necessarily lost. Some of the system losses are recoverable for space heating and a proportion of these may actually be recovered and contribute to the space heating. The recoverable system losses are expressed as a fraction of the distribution thermal losses and a fraction of the distribution auxiliary energy consumption:

QW ,dis ,ls ,rbl = QW ,dis ,ls * fW ,dis ,ls ,rbl + WW ,dis ,aux * fW ,dis ,aux ,rbl

where

(MJ/day)

(9)

is the fraction of distribution thermal losses recoverable for space heating; is the fraction of distribution auxiliary energy consumption recoverable for space heating.

The fractions depend on e.g. location of the pipes, location of the pump, duration of the heating season. If the pipes are installed in the heated space of the building, the thermal losses may be recoverable. However, recoverable losses can only be considered during periods of the year where there is a significant space heating demand. The proportion of the total recoverable system losses that can be recovered is determined according to other standards (e.g. EN ISO 13790 and prEN 15603) for which the total recoverable system losses are provided as an input. The fractions shall be specified in a national annex. If a national annex is not provided or does not include these values, it is considered that no system losses are recoverable for the space heating. ( QW ,dis ,ls ,rbl = 0). Under some circumstances, the recoverable system losses may add to the cooling load required in a building.

20

UNI EN 15316-3-2:2008

EN 15316-3-2:2007 (E)

In some situations, the system losses may be reduced by an energy gain from the building to the cold water supply or by heat recovery from the wastewater. These energy transfers may be ignored, unless otherwise required by a national annex. Some of the auxiliary energy may be recovered as heat in the domestic hot water system, see 7.3.1.

A reduction of thermal losses in case of short intervals between the tapping cycles is not taken into account in this calculation method. Thermal losses due to energy content of wasted hot water at the user outlets, while the desired domestic hot water temperature has not been reached, are not included in this calculation method. If the thermal losses from user outlets, i.e. materials of shower heads or taps, are to be included, a further contribution is added to Equation (A.1) taking into account the mass and specific heat capacity of the user outlet material. Influence of pipe insulation in case of short tapping intervals In case of short tapping intervals, the effect of pipe insulation on thermal losses should be taken into account.

Annex B (informative) Calculation of thermal losses from pipes based on pipe lengths and distribution efficiencies

This method is only applicable for domestic buildings and domestic hot water distribution pipes that are not part of a circulation loop. It is based on estimates of the proportion of the heat energy reaching the user outlets for different pipe lengths. A distinction is made between supplies to kitchens and supplies to bathrooms. It is necessary initially to determine the length of the delivery pipes from the heat generator (or hot water storage vessel) or from the circulation loop to the kitchen and to the bathroom: Lkitchen and Lbathroom . The proportion of heat energy reaching the user outlet is termed

pipe,kitchen

and

pipe,bathroom , respectively.

Values for these parameters are to be obtained from tables. Default values are given in Table B.1. The combined efficiency of the domestic hot water delivery pipes is calculated by:

Annex C (informative) Calculation of thermal losses from pipes based on pipe lengths and tapping profiles

This method is based on estimates of the thermal losses expressed as a proportion of the for domestic hot water energy demand at the user outlets. Data on domestic hot water energy demand is required for this method. If thermal losses from user outlets are taken into account, these losses should be added to the energy demand for domestic hot water. The energy demand for domestic hot water is based on the European domestic hot water tapping programs. Although these are not identical to the domestic hot water energy usage for all potential buildings and usage types, they do provide a representative mixture of small and large hot water draw-offs for different total energy requirements. The thermal loss

Two higher European tapping cycles have been developed for larger energy requirements for domestic hot water. These may also be applied if the actual domestic hot water energy requirement is higher than QW ,3 .

EN 15316-3-2:2007 (E)

If a national annex is not provided or does not include a value for the thermal losses from the pipes of the circulation loop, a default value of 40W/m of pipe length may be applied.

D.2.1 General

The variables required for calculation of the thermal losses from the pipes of the circulation loop can be obtained by the following.

For carrying out the calculations, the domestic hot water distribution system may be considered as comprising up to three different pipe sections. In general, these sections can be described as:

horizontal distribution from the heat generator to the main supply pipes (section LV); main supply pipes (section LS); individual branching pipes to the user outlets (section LSL).

28

UNI EN 15316-3-2:2008

EN 15316-3-2:2007 (E)

Figure D.1 Location of pipes The pipes of section LV (see Figure D.1) may be situated within an unheated space, such as a cellar or an attic, or they may be situated within a thermal skin of the building or the floor. The pipes of section LS may be vertical or horizontal or a combination of both. They are normally situated within the thermal skin of the building. Pipes of sections LV and LS may constitute part of a circulation loop. These are treated separately. Pipes of section LSL are not part of a circulation loop. For new buildings with an already designed domestic hot water system, as well as for new domestic hot water systems installed in existing buildings, calculations of thermal losses should be based on actual pipe lengths within each pipe section according to the design or actual installation. For new buildings in the early stage of design, where the exact design of the domestic hot water system is still not available, representative values of pipe lengths can be applied. These values are related to the effective floor area of the building, and default values given in Table D.1 may be applied. These default values are 2 based on an average floor area of 80 m and an average pipe spur length of 6 m.

where AN is the floor area in m . Decentralised domestic hot water systems provide individual rooms with hot water and do therefore not include a common distribution system or circulation loops. In this case, the only thermal losses from the distribution system are those associated with the individual distribution pipes. The heat generator may supply a single user outlet or a number of user outlets. In either case, the heat generator is installed within the heated space of the building and hence there are no distribution pipes situated in an unheated space. For calculation of the thermal losses from these pipes, the actual length of the pipes should be used. If details of the piping are not available, representative values for the pipe lengths can be used. These values are related to the floor area of the building and may be given in a national annex. If a national annex is not provided or does not include these values, default values given in Table D.2 may be applied.

D.2.3.1 General

The heat transfer coefficient for any pipe section depends on the diameter of the pipe, the location of the pipe (whether within the heated space or not), the type and thickness of any insulation and the age of the installation. Local or national requirements may define the level of pipe insulation to be used, and thus determine the heat transfer coefficients. Values for insulated pipes may therefore be given in a national annex. If a national annex is not provided or does not include these values, default values given in Table D.3 may be applied. D.2.3.2 Non-insulated pipes exposed

The thermal losses from a non-insulated pipe consist of losses through both convection and radiation. The heat transfer from the hot water to the pipe wall and the conduction within the pipe wall (for metal pipes) can be ignored. Where these pipes are exposed, the resulting heat loss coefficients are given in Table D.3.

F.1 Simplified method for calculation of auxiliary energy requirement of a circulation pump

For the simplified calculation method for estimating the auxiliary pump energy, the default value tpmp = 24 h/day may be applied (this is the worst case situation, assuming the pump operates continuously through the day).

F.2 Detailed method for calculation of auxiliary energy requirement of a circulation pump

F.2.1 Hydraulic energy requirement

The hydraulic energy depends on the hydraulic resistance of the system and the pump running time:

(MJ/day)

(F.1)

Phydr

is the hydraulic power required by the pump (kW); is the duration of the provision of domestic hot water (h/day).

tW

The hydraulic power required by the circulation pump to overcome the hydraulic resistance of the system is:

Phydr =

The differential pressure across the circulation pump depends on the resistance of the pipes and fittings in the circulation system as follows:

where

(kPa)

is the maximum pipe length (m); is the differential pressure across fittings, such as back-flow preventer and thermostatic valve (kPa); differential pressure across heat generator (kPa).

If no product data are available, the following default values may be applied:

1 kPa; 15 kPa.

The maximum pipe length for the circulation loop can for a rectangular building approximately be determined from the external dimensions of the building/zone:

If domestic hot water is not required for a full 24-hour period per day, the circulation pump may be operated at an intermittent basis. For convenience, this may be considered as continuous normal operation during daytime and continuous operation at minimum load during the night. The auxiliary energy required for the circulation pump in this case is:

where

(MJ/day)

(F.10)

day night

is the ratio of circulation pump running hours at normal operation to total running hours; is the ratio of circulation pump running hours at minimum load to total running hours;

If the circulation pump is shut off during the night, circulation pump is taken into account by

A proportion of the auxiliary energy supplied to the pump may be recovered as heat transferred to the circulating water. If no value is provided, a default value of 80 % of WW ,dis, pmp may be applied. This recovered auxiliary energy should be subtracted from the total thermal losses of the circulation loop.
