Pack Calculation Pro is a simulation tool for calculating and comparing yearly energy consumption of refrigeration systems and heat pumps.
Pack Calculation Pro is designed to compare different system designs, control strategies and refrigerants for your refrigeration or heat pump project, by calculating yearly energy consumption, as well as Life Cycle Costing (LCC) and Total Equivalent Warming Impact (TEWI).
We kick-start your calculations by reducing the amount of data you should provide, among others by using load profiles and weather data to calculate the performance. We also select well-proven default values for most coefficients and parameters, though you can always customize the preferences, and import your own load profile data, to meet your specific needs.
Our comprehensive database of real compressors, maintained in cooperation with OEMs*, makes it possible to compare performance of different products using a single definition for the operating conditions.

R1234ze(E) compressors were not showing up, due to alternative spelling of refrigerant name used when importing compressor data
Several instabilities in Cooling Tower calculations fixed, including application crashes in the 64-bit version. Only affects under-dimensioned cooling towers – so simulations that before ran without warnings will still return same results.
Fixed unit of mWater and VAir coming from calculations, data was in kg/s and m3/s respectively, but is now in kg/h and m3/h to fit with nomenclature. Affects all simulations with cooling tower
Bug fixes regarding simulation of variable speed parallel compressors
Improvements to memory usage.
Brings back missing exception handler, which can be used to report errors with lots of detail
