I need some help, I’am thinking which would be better to analyse the thermal comfort, is it UTCI comfort map or PMV comfort map?.
I did some excersise but couldn’t solve it.
I first opened the “comfort_mapping” script from samples folder. As this script uses PMV comfort map, I dropped onto de canvas the UTCI component, to compare both results, connecting to it the same inputs PMV comfort map had connected too.
UTCI output (from UTCI comfort map component) and temperature output (from PMV comfort map component) connected to Read thermal matrix component, showed very similar results between both.
By the other hand, when I connected TCP, HSP and CSP outputs from both UTCI comfort map and PMV comfort map, to ‘_values’ input from spatial heatmap component, they showed very different results.
This makes me think:
- why this big difference between the TSP, HSP and CSP outcomes?
- which one (UTCI comfort map or PMV comfort map) would you recommend to analyze the thermal comfort of an indoor room (that has contact to exterior)?
Many thanks for all what you can comment,
