Hottgenroth adds PCM module to building simulation software

Ben Welter - Monday, April 23, 2018

Hottgenroth software PCM menuThe latest versions of Hottgenroth modeling software include simulation of phase change materials in buildings.

“We included PCM in our components properties and can now calculate the given or taken energy hourly for every single room in an complete 3D model,” said Björn Wolff, industrial technology engineer at Hottgenroth Software GmbH & Co., Cologne, Germany.

“Especially for cooling loads it’s important to take the specific mass and heat capacity into account," Wolff explained. "Our simulation is for the dynamic simulation of heat and cooling loads using worldwide climate data. If you know specific values of them we can also simulate renewable energies like PV, heat pumps, CHP, solar thermal, ice storage etc."
