3 Terms and Definitions
The terms and definitions defined in GB/T 18837-2015 and GB/T 25857-2010, and the following terms and definitions are applicable to this document.
3.1 minimum allowable values of energy efficiency for multi-connected air- condition (heat pump) units
Minimum allowable values of energy efficiency for multi-connected air-condition (heat pump) units refer to the minimum allowable values of measured actual performance factor (APF), cooling seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER), integrated part load value (cooling) [IPLV(C)] or cooling energy efficiency ratio (EER) during the cooling and heating operation under the specified operating conditions. For single-cooling products, only the SEER is assessed. 3.2 minimum allowable values of energy efficiency for low ambient temperature air source multi-connected heat pump (air conditioning) units
Minimum allowable values of energy efficiency for low ambient temperature air source multi- connected heat pump (air conditioning) units refer to the minimum allowable values of heating seasonable performance factor (HSPF) and coefficient of performance (COP) of multi- connected heat pump (air conditioning) units that adopt a motor-driven compressor and can generate hot air at an ambient temperature not lower than ?€?25 ???C during the heating operation under the specified operating conditions.
3.3 energy efficiency ratio at the minimum-load operating conditions for multi- connected air-condition (heat pump) units
EERmin
Energy efficiency ratio at the minimum-load operating conditions for multi-connected air- condition (heat pump) units refer to the ratio of the cooling capacity to the total electric power consumption of the units when turning on an indoor unit with the minimum cooling capacity for continuous and stable cooling operation under the specified cooling capacity test conditions. 4 Energy Efficiency Grades
4.1 The energy efficiency of multi-connected units and low-temperature multi-connected units is classified into three grades, in which, Grade-1 represents the highest energy efficiency. 4.2 The energy efficiency of air-cooled single-cooling multi-connectors is classified in accordance with the measured SEER of the products. The measured SEER of each energy efficiency grade shall not be less than the stipulations of Table 1.
temperature multi-connectors outdoor units with a nominal heating capacity of less than or equal to 18,000 W, the standby power shall not be greater than 15 W (additional functions that can be turned off during the test shall be turned off).
5.3 Products adopting electric auxiliary heating shall be able to manually turn on and off the electric auxiliary heating system. Meanwhile, the working status of the electric auxiliary heating system shall be indicated in an obvious position.
5.4 When the outdoor dry-bulb temperature of the multi-connectors is higher than or equal to 0 ???C, the electric auxiliary heating shall not be automatically turned on. 5.5 When the outdoor dry-bulb temperature of the low-temperature multi-connectors is higher than or equal to ?€? 20 ???C, the electric auxiliary heating shall not be automatically turned on. For the low-temperature multi-connectors whose electric auxiliary heating is selected by the user, a port is reserved for the controller, and the start and stop of the auxiliary electric heating system is controlled by the units, the method of turning on and off the auxiliary electric heating shall be explained in the instruction manual (or operation manual).
5.6 The tolerances shall satisfy the following stipulations:
a) The stated value of energy efficiency of the product shall not be less than the specified value of the index corresponding to its rated energy efficiency grade, and shall be within the value range corresponding to its rated energy efficiency grade. b) The measured values of the SEER and EERmin of single-cooling multi-connectors, the APF and EERmin of heat-pump multi-connectors, the IPLV(C) and EER of water- cooled multi-connectors, the HSPF, COP?€?12???C and COP?€?20???C of low-temperature multi- connectors shall not be less than 95% of the stated values. The measured values and the stated values are in integral multiples of 0.01.
