LabHouse is an emulation test rig created to facilitate the design of wall-mounted boilers for domestic heating applications, with the objective of establishing suitable compromises between comfort, energy consumption, robustness and appliance cost. Models were created for the various components used in such a system, and parameter sets were determined for the German and French markets. The system is able to reproduce any building behaviour. 21 refs.
