Standard history
This part of prEN 16905 specifies the safety requirements, the safety test conditions and the safety test methods of gas-fired endothermic engine driven heat pumps for heating and/or cooling mode including the engine heat recovery, to be used outdoors. This document specifies minimum operating requirements which ensure that the products are fit for the use designated by the manufacturer when used for space heating and/or cooling. This document is to be used in conjunction with: a) the terms and conditions, EN 16905-1:2017; b) the test conditions, EN 16905-3:2017; c) the test methods, EN 16905-4:2017; d) the calculation of seasonal performances in heating and cooling mode, EN 16905-5:2017; e) the heat pump, prEN 14511-4:2021, EN 378-1:2016+A1:2020, EN 378-2:2016, EN 378 3:2016+A1:2020, EN 378-4:2016+A1:2019 and EN 14825:2018; f) electrical safety, EN 60335-1:2012, EN 60335-2-102:2016, EN 60335-2-40:20032 and EN 60204 1:2018. This document only applies to GEHP appliances with a maximum heat input (based on net calorific value) not exceeding 70 kW at standard rating conditions. This document only applies to GEHP appliances under categories I2H, I2E, I2Er, I2R, I2E(S)B, I2L, I2LL, I2ELL, I2E(R)B, I2ESi, I2E(R), I3P, I3B, I3B/P, II2H3+, II2Er3+, II2H3B/P, II2L3B/P, II2E3B/P, II2ELL3B/P, II2L3P, II2H3P, II2E3P and II2Er3P according to EN 437:2021. This document only applies to GEHP appliances: a) that have gas fired endothermic engines under the control of fully automatic control systems; b) that have closed system refrigerant circuits in which the refrigerant does not come into direct contact with the fluid to be cooled or heated; c) where the temperature of the heat transfer fluid of the heating system (heating water circuit) does not exceed 105 °C during normal operation; d) where the maximum operating pressure in the: 1) heating water circuit (if installed) does not exceed 6 bar; 2) domestic hot water circuit (if installed) does not exceed 10 bar. This document applies to GEHP appliances only when used for space heating or space cooling or for refrigeration, with or without heat recovery. This document is applicable to GEHP appliances that are intended to be type tested. Requirements for GEHP appliances that are not type tested would need to be subject to further consideration.
