Calculates the design heating and cooling loads and associated psychrometrics for air conditioning plant in buildings. CAMEL is one of the leading air conditioning load estimation programs used in Australia and New Zealand. The calculations are based on the AIRAH/IHRACE Application Manual DA9 “Air Conditioning Systems, Load Estimation & Psychrometrics” which incorporates the cooling load estimation techniques and data developed by the Carrier International Corporation with considerable extensions and refinements to these methods and data, developed by ACADS-BSG. It models buildings in the Southern and Northern Hemisphere.
CAMEL models a range of system types including CV Heating and Cooling, CV Face and Bypass VAV with and without reheat, RC Heat Pumps and Evaporative Coolers and each AHU can serve a number of zones which can in turn have a number of rooms. Plant fresh air quantities can be calculated in accordance with AS1668.
