For each subcase, the coding is made of the name of the base case, the code for the IWT (A or B), the runtime (min), and the off-cycle time (min), in this order.
As can be seen in the cases of a 10 min runtime/5 min off-cycle time, shorter off-cycle time leads to more performance degradation at start-up (however, that does not happen for the cases with bleed port).
In the heating mode, when the off-cycle time increases, the time constant increases if the runtime is 5 min, but decreases if the runtime is 10 min.
In the cooling mode, the influence of the off-cycle time on the time constant is rather negligible.
The time constant decreases when a bleed port is present compared to when there is none, except if the runtime and off-cycle time are both superior to 5 min.
With increasing off-cycle time, the time constant increases if the runtime decreases.
3] in heating mode appears to be relatively independent of the IWT, the runtime, and the off-cycle time.
Keep in mind our cycle of registration periods, and segment July/August 2015, November 2015-January 2016, and May/June 2016, along with anything you recommend during off-cycle times
