With more flexibility to users and updates for local compliance methodologies and continued decarbonization/electrification at the heart of this release, IESVE 2022 brings greater capability and increased functionality that’s in line with industry developments. Take a tour of all the latest features below.
A ground up enhancement to the Virtual Environment, the 64 bit version of the Virtual Environment greatly improves the user experience when modelling particularly for when models get larger or more detailed.
64 bit gives the Virtual Environment access to larger addressable memory space, allowing for detailed outputs to be processed in the VistaPro Application, even when there are thousands of zones present in the model building. Greater support for high resolution results viewing for the largest of models within both VistaPro and detailed Solar visualization in SunCast.
Significant improvements will be most noticeable within the MicroFlo CFD application. The larger addressable memory space means that MicroFlo Grids (or mesh) can be substantially larger allowing either more detail to be investigated or, in the case of external wind studies, greater numbers of surrounding buildings or larger urban environments. In our tests:
Bringing the Virtual Environment fully up to date, the ASHRAE 90.1 Appendix G PRM Navigator is updated to version 90.1 2019. Enhancements for the latest version include:
New 90.1 compliance energy summary reportage in line with new ASHRAE specific reporting requirements.
To provide a fuller picture of both energy and water usage when simulating detailed HVAC Components in ApacheHVAC, new functionality has been added to VistaPro to calculate annual water consumption for equipment that use water (e.g. evaporative cooling). Six new water consumption variables have been added.
We are pleased to announce a new manufacturer integration partnership with Mitsubishi. In IESVE 2022 we are now including VRF performance data from Mitsubishi within ApacheHVAC’s VRF Performance Curve Set. The integration brings in a range of Mitsubishi Electric’s Air Source VRF R410a units, which are both high-efficiency Heat Pumps and incorporate heat recovery.

A New Lighting Fixtures Database from ROBUS includes 736 Lighting Fixtures, from 12 unique Categories and 100% LED Technology.
New automated Area of Interest (AOI) options to better account for useful daylight:
The IESVE Python API has been significantly enhanced and a number of new libraries have been added:

The detailed solar analysis visualization legend can now be filtered to focus in on specific ranges of results. Enhancing the ability to analyse results, these filters help the user summarise results particularly for BRE 209 studies.
Our team is happy to answer any questions you have about IESVE 2022.
