Air conditioners, liquid chilling packages, heat pumps, process chillers and dehumidifiers with electrically driven compressors - Determination of the sound power level - Part 1: Air conditioners, liquid chilling packages, heat pumps for space heating and cooling, dehumidifiers and process chillers

This European Standard establishes requirements for determining, in accordance with a standardized procedure, the sound power level emitted into the surrounding air by air conditioners, heat pumps, liquid chilling packages with electrically driven compressors when used for space heating and/or cooling, and/or for process, as described in the EN 14511 series and dehumidifiers as described in EN 810.
This European Standard also covers the measurement of the sound power level of evaporatively cooled condenser air conditioners, as defined in EN 15218. However, the measurement will be done without external water feeding and these units will thus be considered as the other air conditioners covered by the EN 14511 series.
It is emphasized that this measurement standard only refers to airborne noise.

Luftkonditionierer, Flüssigkeitskühlsätze, Wärmepumpen, Prozesskühler und Entfeuchter mit elektrisch angetriebenen Verdichtern - Bestimmung des Schallleistungspegels - Teil 1: Luftkonditionierer, Flüssigkeitskühlsätze, Wärmepumpen zur Raumbeheizung und -kühlung, Entfeuchter und Prozesskühler

Dieser Europäische Norm Entwurf legt Anforderungen fest, nach denen der von Klimageräten, Wärmepumpen und Flüssigkeitskühlsätzen mit elektrisch angetriebenen Verdichtern zur Raum und/oder Prozessbeheizung und/oder kühlung nach der Normenreihe EN 14511 und Entfeuchtern nach EN 810, an die umgebende Luft abgegebene Schallleistungspegel nach einem genormten Verfahren ermittelt wird.
Dieser Europäische Norm Entwurf behandelt auch die Messung des Schallleistungspegels von Klimageräten mit verdunstungsgekühltem Verflüssiger nach EN 15218. Die Messung muss jedoch ohne Wasserzuleitung von außen durchgeführt werden; diese Geräte werden daher wie die sonstigen in der Normenreihe EN 14511 behandelten Klimageräte betrachtet.
Es wird darauf hingewiesen, dass sich diese Messnorm ausschließlich auf den Luftschall bezieht.

Climatiseurs, groupes refroidisseurs de liquide, pompes à chaleur, refroidisseurs industriels et déshumidificateurs avec compresseur entraîné par moteur électrique - Détermination du niveau de puissance acoustique - Partie 1 : Climatiseurs, groupes refroidisseurs de liquide, pompes à chaleur pour le chauffage et le refroidissement, déshumidificateurs et refroidisseurs industriels

La présente Norme européenne établit les exigences de détermination, suivant un mode opératoire normalisé, du niveau de puissance acoustique émis dans l’air environnant par les climatiseurs, pompes à chaleur ou groupes refroidisseurs de liquide avec compresseur entraîné par moteur électrique, lorsqu’ils sont utilisés pour le chauffage et/ou le refroidissement d’un espace, pour le et/ou les refroidisseurs industriels, comme décrit dans l'EN 14511, et par les déshumidificateurs comme décrits par l’EN 810.
La présente Norme européenne couvre également le mesurage du niveau de puissance acoustique des climatiseurs à condenseur refroidi par évaporation, comme défini dans l’EN 15218. Cependant, le mesurage est réalisé sans alimentation d’eau externe et ces appareils seront alors considérés comme les autres climatiseurs couverts par l’EN 14511.
Il est souligné que la présente norme de mesure se réfère uniquement au bruit aérien.

Klimatske naprave, enote za hlajenje kapljevine, toplotne črpalke, procesne hladilne naprave in razvlaževalniki z električnimi kompresorji - Določanje ravni zvočne moči - 1. del: Klimatske naprave, enote za hlajenje kapljevine, toplotne črpalke za ogrevanje in hlajenje prostora, razvlaževalniki in procesne hladilne naprave

Ta osnutek evropskega standarda v skladu s standardiziranim postopkom določa zahteve za določanje ravni zvočne moči, ki jo v okoljski zrak oddajajo klimatske naprave, toplotne črpalke, enote za tekočinsko hlajenje z električnimi kompresorji, kadar se ti uporabljajo za hlajenje in/ali ogrevanje prostora, vključno z vodno hlajenimi sistemi z več razcepi, kakor je opisano v skupini standardov prEN 14511, in sušilniki zraka, kakor je opisano v standardu EN 810.
Ta osnutek evropskega standarda zajema tudi merjenje ravni zvočne moči klimatskih naprav s kondenzatorjem, ohlajenim z izhlapevanjem, kakor je opisano v standardu EN 15218. Meritev naj bi se opravila brez zunanjega dotoka vode in te enote bodo torej obravnavane kot druge klimatske naprave, zajete v skupini standardov prEN 14511.
Poudariti je treba, da se ta standard za merjenje nanaša zgolj na hrup, ki se prenaša po zraku.
Ta osnutek evropskega standarda ponuja načine za določanje ravni zvočne moči enot. Nekatere od njih so z uporabo laboratorijskih akustičnih metod in dobro nadzorovanih delovnih pogojev posebej prilagojeni zagotavljanju rezultatov z nizko negotovostjo. Te meritve so primerne za namene certificiranja, označevanja z nalepkami in drugega označevanja.
V nekaterih primerih cilj in/ali okolje meritev ne dopuščata tako natančnih metod. Ta osnutek evropskega standarda ponuja tudi načine za ocenjevanje ravni zvočne moči s sprejemljivo natančnostjo, čeprav so akustične metode in/ali delovni pogoji drugačni kot v laboratoriju, npr. meritve na terenu ali meritve za kontrolo kakovosti.
Ta osnutek evropskega standarda podaja dva razreda meritev in rezultatov glede na okolje preskušanja:
– meritve razreda A ustrezajo nadzorovanim delovnim pogojem (standardni pogoji ali pogoji ocenjevanja aplikacij). Določene so glede na tolerance v preglednici 2 in se morajo uporabljati zaradi skladnosti z zahtevami Uredbe komisije (ES) št. 206/2012 z dne 6. marca 2012, ki uveljavlja Direktivo 2009/125/ES Evropskega Parlamenta in Sveta glede zahtev po okoljsko primerni zasnovi za klimatske naprave;
– meritve razreda B ustrezajo primeru, kjer razpona, določenega s tolerancami iz preglednice 2, ni mogoče izpolniti.
Pri obeh razredih je treba uporabiti natančne akustične metode ali akustične metode inženirskega razreda. Izbira metode akustičnega merjenja se izvede skladno s standardom EN ISO 3740 in skupino standardov EN ISO 9614, odvisno od vrste okoliških akustičnih polj (difuzno ali prosto polje, zaprt ali odprt prostor) in razpoložljivih instrumentov. Ne glede na trenutne delovne pogoje je treba poročati o referenci akustičnega standarda z izrecno navedbo razreda natančnosti.
Uporaba standardov EN ISO 3746 in EN ISO 3747 kot metod razreda raziskave ni priporočljiva zaradi visoke stopnje negotovosti. Uporaba teh standardov je dovoljena le pri nenadzorovanih okoljih.
Določene so tri metode za določanje ravni zvočne moči, da bi se izognili pretiranemu omejevanju obstoječih zmožnosti in izkušenj:
– prva metodologija temelji na merjenju v prostoru za preskus odmevov (glej standard EN ISO 3741 in skupino standardov EN ISO 3743);
– druga metoda temelji na meritvah v polju, ki je v osnovi prosto, nad odbojno ravnino (glej standarda EN ISO 3744 in EN ISO 3745);
– tretja metoda temelji na merjenju jakosti zvoka (glejte skupino standardov EN ISO 9614) v okolju, ki naj bi bilo prednostno prosto.
Za reference v tem osnutku evropskega standarda, ki se nanašajo na skupino standardov EN ISO 3743, se naj bi razumelo, kot da se nanašajo tudi na standarda EN ISO 3743-1 ali EN ISO 3743-2.

¯ Determination of the sound power level: — Part 1: Air conditioners, liquid chilling packages, heat pumps for space heating and cooling, dehumidifiers and process chillers — Part 2: Heat pump water heaters According to the CEN-CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organisations of the following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom. SIST EN 12102-1:2018

EN 12102-1:2017 (E) 5 Introduction This European Standard offers ways to determine the sound power level of air conditioners, liquid chilling packages, heat pumps, and dehumidifiers with electrically driven compressors. Some of them are specifically adapted to provide results with low uncertainties, by using laboratory class acoustic methods and highly controlled operating conditions. Those measurements are suitable for certification, labelling and marking purposes. In some cases, the target and/or the environment of the measurements do not allow such precision-class methods. This European Standard also offers ways to assess sound power levels with acceptable accuracy even though acoustic methods and/or operating conditions are not laboratory-type, e.g. in situ or quality control measurements. This European Standard gives two classes of measurements and results, according to the test environment: — Class A measurements correspond to controlled operating conditions (standard or application rating conditions). It is defined by the respect to the tolerances of Table 2 and will be used for the conformity to requirements of: — The Commission Regulation (EU) No 206/2012 of 6 March 2012 implementing Directive 2009/125/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to ecodesign requirements for air conditioners; — Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 811/2013 of 18 February 2013 supplementing Directive 2010/30/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to the energy labelling of space heaters, combination heaters, packages of space heater, temperature control and solar device and packages of combination heater, temperature control and solar device; — The Commission Regulation (EU) No 813/2013 of 2 August 2013 implementing Directive 2009/125/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to ecodesign requirements for space heaters and combination heaters; — The Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 626/2011 of 4 May 2011 supplementing Directive 2010/30/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to energy labelling of air conditioners. — Class B measurements correspond to the case where the range defined by the tolerances of Table 2 cannot be fulfilled. In both classes, precision or engineering class acoustic methods need to be applied. The choice of the acoustic measurement method is done in accordance with EN ISO 3740 and the EN ISO 9614 series depending on the type of surrounding acoustic fields (diffuse or free field, enclosed or open space), and the available instrumentation. The reference of acoustic standard needs to be reported with explicit mention of its accuracy class, whatever the current operating conditions. The use of EN ISO 3746 and EN ISO 3747 as survey grade methods are not recommended due to the high level of uncertainties. Their use is only allowed for non-controlled environments when they fulfil the engineering grade requirement. Three methods for determining the sound power levels are specified in order to avoid unduly restricting existing facilities and experience: — the first methodology is based on reverberation room measurement (see EN ISO 3741 and the EN ISO 3743 series); SIST EN 12102-1:2018

EN 12102-1:2017 (E) 6 — the second method is based on measurements in an essentially free field over a reflecting plane (see EN ISO 3744 and EN ISO 3745); — the third method is based on sound intensity measurement (see the EN ISO 9614 series) preferably in a free field environment. The necessity to maintain the test conditions obviously leads to recommend test methods implemented in acoustically designed (enclosed) spaces, such as EN ISO 3741, the EN ISO 3743 series, EN ISO 3745 and also the EN ISO 9614 series when implemented in an enclosed space. The open spaces will be used only in specific cases, e.g. when the size or the capacity of the unit under test cannot be managed by standard test rooms. Suitable test methods are EN ISO 3744 and the EN ISO 9614 series. NOTE Intensity measurement methods are quite robust and are well suited for tests to be done in environments without or with a light acoustic treatment (the better the acoustic treatment, the easier the implementation). SIST EN 12102-1:2018

EN 12102-1:2017 (E) 7 1 Scope This European Standard establishes requirements for determining, in accordance with a standardized procedure, the sound power level emitted into the surrounding air by air conditioners, heat pumps, liquid chilling packages with electrically driven compressors when used for space heating and/or cooling, and/or for process, as described in the EN 14511 series and dehumidifiers as described in EN 810. This European Standard also covers the measurement of the sound power level of evaporatively cooled condenser air conditioners, as defined in EN 15218. However, the measurement will be done without external water feeding and these units will thus be considered as the other air conditioners covered by the EN 14511 series. It is emphasized that this measurement standard only refers to airborne noise. 2 Normative references The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are indispensable for its application.

It is then recommended to measure relative humidity or dew point instead of determining the wet bulb temperature. Suitable windshields are recommended to be fitted on microphones if they have to be affected by air velocity (above about 2 m/s) which may be produced by the unit under test or by the laboratory facilities. Adjustment shall be made to the measured sound pressure levels to compensate for any alteration in the sensitivity of shielded microphones. Above 10 m/s, windshields are usually not efficient enough and care shall be taken to reduce the air velocity (by changing the location of microphones) or to change the type of windshields. It is recommended to fit the intensity probes with windshields if they have to be affected by air velocity because they are much more sensitive to that parameter. For instance, the maximum air velocity admitted by EN ISO 9614-1 is 2 m/s. SIST EN 12102-1:2018

EN 12102-1:2017 (E) 11 5 Operation of the unit As a general rule, the sound power level is dependent on the operating conditions of the unit. Sound measurements shall be carried out at the standard rating conditions. The unit shall be installed and connected for the test as recommended by the manufacturer in its installation and operation manual according to the EN 14511 series. The accessories provided by option (for example heating element) shall not be included in the test. For inverter-type units, additional requirements to be fulfilled are given in Annex A. Steady-state conditions of operation of the unit are considered obtained and maintained when all the measured quantities remain constant, with respect of the tolerances given in Table 3. The noise measurement shall be started after at least 30 min of operation under steady-state conditions of the unit. If a defrosting cycle occurs, this delay is reduced to 10 min of operation under steady-state conditions of the unit. These steady-state conditions shall be maintained during the sound pressure (or intensity) measurements that may require from 30 s (multichannel analyser) to several hours (free field methods). This requires the continuous recording of the meaningful data. The uncertainties of each measurem
