SIST EN 13203-1:2015
EN 13203-1:2015 (E)
— electrical energy: ± 2 %.

The stated measurement uncertainties relate to individual measurements. For measurements that

combine a number of individual measurements, smaller uncertainties on the individual measurements

may be necessary to ensure a total uncertainty within ± 2 % under the steady state conditions.

These uncertainties correspond to two standard deviations (2σ).
4.3 Test conditions
4.3.1 General

Except where otherwise stated, the appliance shall be tested under the following conditions.

4.3.2 Test room

The appliance shall be installed in a well-ventilated, draught-free room (air speed less than 0,5 m/s).

4.3.3 Water supply
For the tests:

— domestic water pressure is the static inlet pressure under dynamic conditions measured as close as

possible to the appliance;

— inlet and outlet temperatures of the domestic water shall be measured in the centre of the flow and

as close as possible to the appliance.

The inlet temperatures shall be measured immediately upstream of the water inlet connection. Except

where otherwise stated, the outlet temperatures shall be measured immediately downstream of the

outlet connection or, in the case of an appliance with spout delivery, by means of an immersed

temperature measuring device, e.g. a u-tube fitted at the outlet of a tube of the same length as the

minimum length of the spout normally supplied by the manufacturer.
The hot water temperature shall be measured with a rapid response thermometer.

"Rapid response thermometer" means a measuring instrument with a response time such that 90 % of

the final temperature rise, from 15 °C to 100 °C, is obtained within about 1 s, when the sensor is

plunged into still water.
4.3.4 Steady state

Steady state operating conditions shall be regarded as established when the appliance operates for

sufficient time to reach thermal stabilization. The steady state is reached when the water temperature

at the outlet does not vary by more than ± 0,5 K.

NOTE This condition can be reached with a gas which is different from the specified test gas, provided that

the appliance is supplied with the specified test gas at least 5 min before the requirements are verified.

4.3.5 Initial adjustment of the appliance

The appliance shall be installed in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.

The heat input shall be adjusted to within ± 2 % of the nominal domestic hot water heat input.

number of stars corresponding to a determined level of performance.
5.2 Characterisation according to the domestic hot water rates
5.2.1 Specific rate
5.2.1.1 Requirement

The measured value of the specific rate shall be not lower than 95 % of that stated by the appliance

documentation.
5.2.1.2 Test

The appliance shall be adjusted to deliver hot water at the rate stipulated by the installation

instructions for this test.
The pressure loss across the appliance shall not exceed 2 bar.
---------------------- Page: 11 ----------------------
SIST EN 13203-1:2015
EN 13203-1:2015 (E)

During the measurement of the specific rate, the minimum temperature increase shall be equal to or

greater than 30 K.

Before the test, the appliance shall be adjusted in accordance with 4.3.5. A first delivery shall be carried

out over a period of 10 min, followed by 20 min with no delivery and then by a second delivery over a

period of 10 min (see Figures A.5 and A.6).

Measurements of temperature and flow rate shall be made and recorded, at intervals not exceeding 2 s.

A plot of temperature against time is made to obtain the mean water temperature rise during each

delivery.
For each delivery the following shall be calculated by the formula:
i(10)
D ⋅ (1)
10 30
where

D is the calculated rate for each delivery; D and D are determined respectively during the

i 1 2
first and second deliveries, in litre per minute (l/min)

m is the quantity of water collected during the first or second delivery with a minimum

i(10)
temperature rise of 30 K, in litre (l);

ΔT is the mean temperature rise of the collected water, in Kelvins (K) during the first and

second deliveries

If the difference between D1 and D2 does not exceed numerically 10 % of their average value then

D + D
D = (2)
where D is the determined specific rate.

If the difference between D and D exceeds numerically 10 % of their average value, then D is the lower

1 2
value.
The kitchen specific rate (D ) shall be calculated by the formula:
(3)
DD⋅

NOTE When the water temperature is adjustable, additional measurement of the specific rate with a delivery

temperature can be specified by the appliance documentation.
5.2.2 Tapping capability
5.2.2.1 Requirement

The appliance shall be capable of delivering water at the rate stated in the appliance documentation

where
t time recorded during the test
t standardized time
ΔT mean water temperature increase (3.17)
R tapping capability stated by the appliance documentation
R mean rate recorded during the test
t should be t ± 30 s.

For the test with a continuous delivery, the measurement of the rate shall be carried out following the

test for the tapping capability with the standardized time of 10 min. Without stopping the appliance, the

delivery rate shall be adjusted to the value stated by the technical instructions for the continuous rate

(see Figures A.7 and A.8).

5.3 Classification according to the quality of the domestic hot water produced
5.3.1 Classification procedure

The classification of appliances according to the performance in delivery of the domestic hot water

takes account of a certain number of particular performance criteria; these criteria are as follows:

— waiting time, t ;
— variation of the temperature according to the water rate, ΔT ;
— temperature fluctuation (during delivery at a constant water rate), ΔT ;
— temperature stabilization time in case of variation of the water rate, t ;
— minimum nominal water rate, D ;
— temperature fluctuation between successive deliveries, ΔT

Depending on the test results obtained, each particular performance criterion is given a score of

between 0 and 3, called the "particular performance factor" f .

In addition, each criterion is associated with a weighting coefficient (a ) corresponding to a ranking of

importance.

An overall performance factor, F, is calculated to quantify the performance associated with the domestic

hot water delivered.

This factor F is obtained by calculating the sum of the products of the particular performance factors

multiplied by the corresponding weighting coefficients.

The particular performance factors and the weighting factors corresponding to each of the criteria

considered are given in Table 1.

— when there is no control cycle to consider: at least one hour after the previous delivery;

— when there is a control cycle to consider : after a time corresponding to 20 % (but not exceeding 1 h) of

the "OFF" time of the burner. The time is taken from the time the burner turns off in the control cycle.

The same initial state conditions shall be used for all the tests. These conditions shall be included in the test

report.

For appliances with a central heating function, tests shall be conducted in summer mode.

4.3.7 Electrical supply

5 Characterisation of the domestic hot water function of appliances
5.1 General

The domestic hot water function of domestic hot water appliances shall be characterised in two different ways:

— firstly, according to the domestic hot water specific rates, the tapping capability and the corresponding

uses (see 5.2);

— secondly, according to the quality of the domestic hot water produced (see 5.3); obtaining a number of

stars corresponding to a determined level of performance.
5.2 Characterisation according to the domestic hot water rates
5.2.1 Specific rate
5.2.1.1 Requirement

The measured value of the specific rate shall be not lower than 95 % of that stated by the appliance

documentation.
5.2.1.2 Test

The appliance shall be adjusted to deliver hot water at the rate stipulated by the installation instructions for this

test.
The pressure loss across the appliance shall not exceed 2 bar.

During the measurement of the specific rate, the minimum temperature increase shall be equal to or greater

than 30 K.

Before the test, the appliance shall be adjusted in accordance with 4.3.5. A first delivery shall be carried out

over a period of 10 min, followed by 20 min with no delivery and then by a second delivery over a period of 10

min (see Figures A.5 and A.6).
---------------------- Page: 11 ----------------------
kSIST FprEN 13203-1:2015
FprEN 13203-1:2015 (E)
The test follows the sequence:
— water delivery of 10 min duration;
— 20 min period of no water delivery;
— further water delivery of 10 min duration.

Measurements of temperature and flow rate shall be made and recorded, at intervals not exceeding 2 s. A plot

of temperature against time is made to obtain the mean water temperature rise during each delivery.

For each delivery the following shall be calculated by the formula:
(10)
∆ = ⋅ …(1)
10 30
where

D is the calculated rate for each delivery; D and D are determined respectively during the first

i 1 2
and second deliveries, in litre per minute (l/min)

m is the quantity of water collected during the first or second delivery with a minimum temperature

i(10)
rise of 30 K, in litre (l);

ΔT is the mean temperature rise of the collected water, in Kelvins (K) during the first and second

deliveries

If the difference between D and D does not exceed numerically 10 % of their average value then

1 2
D + D
1 2
D = …(2)
where D is the determined specific rate.

If the difference between D and D exceeds numerically 10 % of their average value, then D is the lower

1 2
value.
The kitchen specific rate (D ) shall be calculated by the formula:
∆ = ∆ ⋅ …(3)

NOTE When the water temperature is adjustable, additional measurement of the specific rate with a delivery

temperature can be specified by the appliance documentation.
5.2.2 Tapping capability
5.2.2.1 Requirement

The appliance shall be capable of delivering water at the rate stated in the appliance documentation with a

temperature rise not less than 30 K, for the standard time of 10 min and continuously. Additional flow rate

times of 5 min and 20 min can be used in accordance to the appliance documentation.

The tapping capability corresponding to these time periods shall be available to the consumer.

The measured tapping capability shall not be more than 5 % below the value stated by the appliance

documentation.
---------------------- Page: 12 ----------------------
kSIST FprEN 13203-1:2015
FprEN 13203-1:2015 (E)
5.2.2.2 Test

The appliance shall be adjusted to deliver water at the flow rate and temperature stated by the appliance

documentation for this test.
The pressure loss across the appliance shall not exceed 2 bar.

Before starting the tapping test, the appliance shall be in the initial state conditions and in the initial adjustment

conditions defined in 4.3.5 and 4.3.6. The flow rate and temperature of the delivery are recorded at intervals

not exceeding 2 sec. The domestic water mean temperature is calculated.

Tapping capability shall be measured during the standardised times 10 minutes and continuously (with the

additional options of 5 min and/or 20 min).

For the test with a non-continuous delivery, the test shall be run for the standardised time(s) with a tolerance

of ± 30 s. During the test, the temperature rise shall not fall below 30 K (see Figures A.7 and A.8).

The tapping capability shall be calculated by the formula:
∆T t
R = R ⋅ ⋅ …(4)
30 t
where
t time recorded during the test
t standardized time
ΔT mean water temperature increase (3.17)
R tapping capability stated by the appliance documentation
R mean rate recorded during the test
NOTE t should be t ± 30 sec

For the test with a continuous delivery, the measurement of the rate shall be carried out following the test for

the tapping capability with the standardised time of 10 min. Without stopping the appliance, the delivery rate

shall be adjusted to the value stated by the technical instructions for the continuous rate (see Figures A.7 and

A.8).
The tapping capability shall be calculated by the formula:
R = R ⋅ …(5)

The burner remains in operation and the temperature rise shall not vary by more than ± 2 K.

5.2.3 Classification according to the quantity of available domestic hot water

Depending on the value obtained, the tapping capability within 10 min is used to classify the quantity of

available domestic hot water, as indicated below.
Value of the tapping capability at 10 min:
— R < 10 l/min Label : 1 tap
— 10 ≤ R (10 min) < 15 l/min Label : 2 taps

— R (10 min) ≥ 20 l/min Label : 4 taps
5.3 Classification according to the quality of the domestic hot water produced
5.3.1 Classification procedure

The classification of appliances according to the performance in delivery of the domestic hot water takes

account of a certain number of particular performance criteria; these criteria are as follows:

— waiting time, t ;
— variation of the temperature according to the water rate, ΔT ;
— temperature fluctuation (during delivery at a constant water rate), ΔT ;
— temperature stabilization time in case of variation of the water rate, t ;
— minimum nominal water rate, D ;
— temperature fluctuation between successive deliveries, ΔT

Depending on the test results obtained, each particular performance criterion is given a score of between 0

and 3, called the "particular performance factor" f .

In addition, each criterion is associated with a weighting coefficient (a) corresponding to a ranking of

importance.

An overall performance factor, F, is calculated to quantify the performance associated with the domestic hot

water delivered.

This factor F is obtained by calculating the sum of the products of the particular performance factors multiplied

by the corresponding weighting coefficients.

The particular performance factors and the weighting factors corresponding to each of the criteria considered

are given in Table 1.
