Test Lab Emulation Application
An in house testing application developed to emulate the thermal behaviour of a room/space. The application allows testing of a products controls strategy without the need for a physical test space and running plant. Saving on development cost and the unnecessary environmental impact. As testing can be performed in a virtual environment, multiple product versions can be tested simultaneously, cutting down on development times. Along with the ability to recreate a night/day cycle the application allows for emulating multiple other real world situations such as open window events, elevated thermal loadings due to increases in occupants and direct sunlight due to window orientations.
