Get Psyched

Psychrometric Worksheet
ver 2.0

focus on energy This sheet will allow you to do psychrometric calculations in Excel and plot your results on a psych chart. The spreadsheet formulas are based on ASHRAE correlations and are accurate to more decimal places than you can read off a psych chart. Overview The Get Psyched software includes two basic parts: 1) The Add-In (PSYCH.XLA) The add-in allows you to do psychrometric calculations in any Excel spreadsheet. After you have installed the add-in you can use psychrometric functions in calculations just like you use other functions in Excel. For more information on how to use the functions, see the help file. 2) The Spreadsheet Template (PSYCH.XLT & PSYCH_SI.XLT) The spreadsheet template (this file) uses the add-in functions to create a psychrometric chart. The chart can be easily customized for any altitude. The template also includes some example calculations and an easy method for adding your own data to the psych chart. You can use the spreadsheet template as a starting point for your own spreadsheets. For more information on how to use the template, see the help file. The template is available in IP units (PSYCH.XLT) and metric (SI) units (PSYCH_SI.XLT).

These are the properties that you can calculate with the Psychrometric Function Library:
Enthalpy [Btu/lb] Dewpoint Temperature [F] Relative Humidity [%] Humidity Ratio [lbs H2O per lb dry air or grains] Specific Volume [ft^3 per lb] Wet Bulb Temperature [F]

Sheet Template
You can use this sheet as a starting point for your worksheet. It is important that you you do not delete the cell named "Pressure" (in grey). This is a named variable that is used throughout the workbook.You can move it if you like and delete any other elements on the page (including this text box). You can also rename this sheet. There is also a table below that is used to look up the atmospheric pressure based on the altitude. You can delete it if you override the lookup function and enter the pressure yourself.

Choose which table to use based on the variables that you know. The tables correspond to the three situations listed in the examples. Clear the data in the other tables so that only your data is displayed. You can insert rows as needed if you need to plot more points. Note that you need at least 2 points for the plot to appear on the graph. You can list the same point twice if you only want to show one point.
