First International Thermal-Fluid-Dynamic MockUp – Validation of EcoThermo Metrological Method at INRIM

8 June 2016

This video shows the first international thermal-fluid-dynamic mockup installed in an INRIM (the Italian National Metrological Research Institute) facility. This testbed environment has been designed and realized to create a controllable full centralized heating system in order to validate the metrological EcoThermo innovations in a real use case and not in an ideal one as used by the heating allocation industry. In fact, it is well known that heat cost allocators work properly and with an acceptable accuracy when they are tested and calibrated in ideal working conditions while their quality indeed decrease once an entire system is installed in a real building.
