This European Standard covers the energy performance calculation of complete cooling systems. It gives a calculation method that defines how to collect the cooling energy requirements from the thermal zones and from the air handling units connected to a distribution system, and how to aggregate multiple distribution systems to an overall system energy requirement. It incorporates the calculation of the emission and distribution losses and auxiliary energy. The required cooling energy to be extracted by the cooling generation system is calculated, and the cooling energy storage is considered. It gives a method on how to dispatch the cooling energy provided by the cooling generation to different distribution systems, and possible priorities are considered. This European Standard defines energy performance indicators for cooling systems. Table 1 shows the relative position of this standard within the EPB package of standards in the context of the modular structure as set out in prEN ISO 52000-1. NOTE 1 In prCEN ISO/TR 52000-2 the same table can be found, with, for each module, the numbers of the relevant EPB standards and accompanying technical reports that are published or in preparation. NOTE 2 The modules represent EPB standards, although one EPB standard might cover more than one module and one module might be covered by more than one EPB standard, for instance a simplified and a detailed method respectively.
