¡Get Psyched!

ĄGet Psyched! logo.

Allows you to do psychrometric calculations in MS Excel. ĄGet Psyched! is based on ASHRAE correlations and is more than accurate enough for HVAC applications. It works with both English (IP) and Metric (SI) units.

You can calculate these properties in any Excel spreadsheet:

  • Enthalpy (h)
  • Dewpoint Temperature (dp)
  • Relative Humidity (%)
  • Humidity Ratio (W)
  • Specific Volume (v)
  • Wet Bulb Temperature (wb)

Can also quickly and easily plot points on a psychrometric chart. The chart will correct automatically to any altitude that you select, up to 15,000 ft. or 5,000 meters. Screen Shots

Keywords

psychrometric chart, moisture, humidity, dry bulb temperature, wet bulb temperature

Validation/Testing

Software uses algorithms developed by ASHRAE. Validations done by Hyland and Wexler.

Expertise Required

Any user familiar with Excel won't have any trouble using it.

Users

Over 5,000 users worldwide.

Audience

Engineers, researchers and others interested in psychrometric properties of moist air.

Input

User supplies two known quantities such as dry bulb temperature and wet bulb temperature. From these the functions allow you to find other unknown properties such as dewpoint temperature, relative humidity, enthalpy, etc.

Output

The package includes a psychrometric chart in Excel where points or processes can be plotted. Results can also be added to any Excel spreadsheet such as the user's own analysis template.

Computer Platform

Windows '95, '98, ME, NT, Windows 2000, XP with Excel.

Programming Language

Visual Basic

Strengths

Psychrometric analysis for HVAC processes in a spreadsheet.

Weaknesses

The correlations used in the software were developed for HVAC calculations and energy analysis. They are not intended for analysis at extremely high temperatures and pressures such as conditions found in engine combustion.
