This report presents detailed definitions of performance figures for:
1. The components, for the component tests which may also be used for system evaluations e.g. by the Component Test System Simulation (CTSS) method;
2. The whole system and its subsystems, for the system analysis and optimisation, as well as for comparison of SHP systems among each other (including quality assurance – performance reporting), using e.g. monitoring results or whole system test (WST) results;
3. The whole system, for comparison of SHP systems to other systems in terms of e.g. energy efficiency, primary energy efficiency, and emissions.
