GOST R 54539-2011 Air conditioners, liquid chilling packages and heat pumps with electrically driven compressors for space heating and cooling. Test methods for the performance

Last updated: 22 July 2020

This part of the standard specifies the test conditions for the ratings of air-cooled and water-cooled air conditioners, packaged liquid chillers, air-to-air, water-to-air, air-to-water and water-to-water heat pumps with electrically driven compressors when used in space heating and / or cooling mode. Test conditions for heat recovery actions of multi-split systems have also been established.


The standard applies to prefabricated units, which can be ducted, and to prefabricated unitized liquid chillers with integrated or remote condensers.


This standard is used for prefabricated units with a constant capacity and controlled in any way.


The scope of this standard includes aggregated devices, single split and multi-split systems, and single and two-channel aggregates.


If the unit consists of several parts, the standard applies only to those designed and supplied as a complete set, except for packaged liquid chillers with a remote condenser.


This standard is intended primarily for packaged water and brine chillers, but can be used for other fluids as agreed.


This standard applies to air-to-air conditioners that evaporate condensate on the condenser side.


Units with a condenser that is cooled by air and evaporation of additional external water are not included in the scope of the standard.


This standard does not apply to units using transcritical cycles such as c GOST R 54539-2011 Air conditioners, aggregated liquid coolers and heat pumps with electrically driven compressors for heating and cooling premises.  Performance test methods as a refrigerant.


Plants used for heating and / or cooling in industrial processes are not covered by the standard.
