Hourly Analysis Program (HAP)
A system design tool and an energy simulation tool in one package. Uses a Windows-based graphical user interface and 32-bit software. HAP's design module uses a system-based approach that tailors sizing procedures and reports to the specific type of system being considered. Central AHUs, packaged rooftop units, split systems, fan coils, and PTACs can be designed, as can CAV, VAV, single- and multiple-zone systems. The ASHRAE-endorsed Transfer Function Method is used to calculate building heat flow.
HAP's energy simulation module performs a true 8,760 hour energy simulation of building heat flow and equipment performance. It uses TMY weather data and the Transfer Function Method. Many types of air handling systems, packaged equipment, and plant equipment can be simulated. Costs can be computed using complex utility rates. Extensive reports and graphs document hourly, daily, monthly, and annual energy and cost performance.
