GLHEPRO 4.0-LRO: Contains only large rectangular borefields, 100 boreholes and larger. The algorithms used to create the g-functions were based on configurations of up to 400 boreholes in size. Beyond 400 boreholes, the program extrapolates the results.

GLHEPRO 4.0-400+: Contains all configurations in GLHEPRO 4.0-120 and GLHEPRO 4.0-LRO.

New features for version 4.0 include:

  • Capability to model rectangular borefields up to 900 boreholes.
  • Sizing of ground loop heat exchanger and supplemental heat source/sink as part of a hybrid ground source heat pump system.
  • More accurate calculation of borehole thermal resistance, including thermal mass effects.
  • Revamped fluid property routines. The working fluid can now be specified in terms of composition and concentration.
  • Addition of double U-tube and concentric tube heat exchangers.
  • Marked improvement of output reporting. Users can specify what information is reported, and have the option of creating a Microsoft Excel-compatible .CSV file.
  • International ground temperatures are available for several locations, and users may enter additional locations.
  • Heat pump database has been greatly expanded.
