class Ifc2x3::IfcChillerType : public Ifc2x3::IfcEnergyConversionDeviceType

The energy conversion device type IfcChillerType defines commonly shared information for occurrences of chillers. The set of shared information may include:

common properties with shared property sets common representations of shape common materials common composition of elements common ports applicable assignment of process types

It is used to define a chiller specification (i.e. the specific product information, that is common to all occurrences of that product type). Chiller types may be exchanged without being already assigned to occurrences. Occurrences of IfcChillerType are represented by instances of IfcChiller.

HISTORY: New entity in IFC2x2

Property Set Use Definition The property sets relating to this entity are defined by IfcPropertySet and attached by the HasPropertySets attribute. Refer to the documentation at the supertype IfcEnergyConversionDeviceType and ancestors for inherited property set definitions. The following property set definitions are applicable to this entity: Pset_ChillerTypeCommon

Material Use Definition The material of the IfcChillerType is defined by IfcMaterialConstituentSet or as a fallback by IfcMaterial, and attached by the RelatingMaterial attribute on the IfcRelAssociatesMaterial relationship. It is accessible by the HasAssociations inverse attribute. The following keywords for IfcMaterialConstituentSet.MaterialConstituents[n].Name shall be used:

‘Casing’: Material from which the casing is constructed. ‘Refrigerant’: Refrigerant material.

Composition Use Definition The IfcChillerType may be aggregated into components using IfcRelAggregates where RelatingObject refers to the enclosing IfcChillerType and RelatedObjects contains one or more components. Components are reflected at occurrences of this type using the IfcRelDefinesByObject relationship. Aggregation use is defined for the following predefined types:

(All Types): May contain IfcDistributionElement components. Chillers may aggregate distribution flow elements forming a refrigeration cycle (compressor, condenser, valve, evaporator), as well as control elements.

Port Use Definition The distribution ports relating to the IfcChillerType type are defined by IfcDistributionPort and attached by the IfcRelConnectsPortToElement relationship. Ports are reflected at occurrences of this type using the IfcRelDefinesByObject relationship. Refer to the documentation at IfcChiller for standard port definitions.
