- Use the Update function in EED -

Version 3.12 update
2008-10-08:
Corrected error message that was wrong in version 3.11:
"The error message “Warning: Fluid minimum temp. accuracy not met!” was sometimes shown when using F9 (solve mean fluid temp) even though simulation was ok.

Version 3.11 update

2008-09-24:
- Graphics added for borehole and heat exchanger, see figures below. Shank spacing may graphically be changed for U-pipes.

 


- Thermal conductivity added for filling material in the case with coaxial heat exchanger.

- Graphics added for borehole configuration, see example picture below with 16 boreholes in an L2-configuration.


- More solutions found for cases with large borehole spacings (>55 m).

- A few corrected error messages.

Version 3.10 update
2008-09-03:
- Smaller fix if english units is used: Some values shown in output window for Monthly energy profile were not displayed correctly (sum of "factors" and "loads")
- Exporting to xls-file in optimization window: If number of rows was less than 20, an error was shown
- Language files complete for English, Bulgarian, Catalan, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish (Castilian), Swedish, Turkish

Version 3.09 update
2008-07-09:
- The flow rate in the borehole was calculated wrong when option "for all boreholes" was used
- Maximum value for series factor now increased from 10 to 99
- If series factor is larger than number of boreholes, the flow rate in the borehole Qbh will now be the same as specified flow Q


Version 3.08 update

2008-07-03:
- Support and language file for Greek added

- New files for surface temperature and heat flux (June 16, 2008)
- Language files complete for English, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Spanish (Castilian), Swedish, Turkish, Portuguese, Polish and Dutch (June 16, 2008)


 


New databases
[Included in updates above]

New files for surface temperature and heat flux are available. Download the zip-file and extract the files to the directory where EED is located (e.g. C:\Program Files\Blocon\EED_3) and replace the old files.

Data for surface temperatures and ground heat flux now cover several locations in AUSTRIA, BELGIUM, BULGARIA, CROATIA, CZECH REPUBLIC, DENMARK, ESTONIA, FINLAND, FRANCE, GERMANY (over 60 locations), GREECE, HUNGARY, ICELAND, IRELAND, ITALY, LATVIA, LIECHTENSTEIN, LITHUANIA, LUXEMBOURG, MACEDONIA, NETHERLANDS, NORWAY, POLAND, PORTUGAL, ROMANIA, SERBIA, SLOWAKIA, SLOWENIA, SPAIN, SWEDEN, SWITZERLAND, TURKEY, and UNITED KINGDOM.

EED_Database.zip (June 16, 2008)

Data are mainly taken from national meteorological services and from different editions of EU geothermal atlas.

EED_Languages.zip (August 25, 2008)
Download this zip-file and extract the files to the directory where the language folder is located (e.g. C:\Program Files\Blocon\EED_3\Languages) and replace the old files. Choose language in EED (menu item Settings/Language).

EED does not yet support unicode characters. We hope to be able to add this later on. However you can find the translation into Chinese (and all other languages) in the following excel file:
EED_Languages_xls.zip (August 25, 2008)


Help needed for translation into other languages

We offer a free license of EED Multi-lingual  if you make a valid translation into a new language (add a column in EED_Languages_xls.zip). If you wish to contribute, please contact us first in case of that no other is currently working on it. 

At the moment, we need translations made for the following languages:
Finnish, Japanese, Korean, Czech, Slovene, Serbo-Croatian, Russian, Indonesian, Hindi, Slovak, Urdu, Arabic, Farsi.

There are about 1100 words to translate.

A good start for the translation work can be here:

How to create files for a new language

New language files can easily be created and edited. There are three files for the menu text, the input dialogue text, and the output text:
    Menu text: Lang_menu_***.txt
    Input text: Lang_in_***.txt
    Output text: Lang_out_***.txt

The "***" should be replaced by the ISO 639-2 Code, see
http://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-2/php/code_list.php

E.g. the Swedish files are named
    Lang_menu_swe.txt
    Lang_in_swe.txt
    Lang_out_swe.txt


If you create new language files please consider to email these to info@blocon.se and we will make these available to others.

Create/Add/Edit languages in menu item Settings/Options, see below.

Write the translation to the left (here in German).
