- The main reason of using 1D analysis is generally determine the pressures, temperatures, heat transfer capacities and flow rates of each component on the system.
- 1D system model involves all the components of the system such as compressors, heat exchangers, fans, pipes, valves, controllers and all other necessary equipment in order to system function as expected.
- By entering all the inputs related with each equipment on a 1D model, one can examine the overall system performance. During the numerical solution, empirical laws are being used.
- Once a 1D model of a system has been created, performance maps of that system can be obtained by changing the inputs of each component. In this way, the effect of the change in each equipment on the system can be examined.
