Use this component to calculate Wet Bulb Temperature and Dew Point Temperature
This component uses the "Method for obtaining wet-bulb temperatures by modifying the psychrometric formula"
created by J. Sullivan and L. D. Sanders (Center for Experiment Design and Data Analysis).
NOAA - National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Special thanks goes to the authors of the online wet-bulb temperature calculator

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
Dry Bulb Temperature_dryBulbTemperatureThe dry bulb temperature [°C] from Import epw component and Ladybug_Average Data or generic lists of numbers.Goo
Relative Humidity_relativeHumidityThe relative humidity [%] from Import epw component and Ladybug_Average Data or generic lists of numbers.Goo
Barometric Pressure_barometricPressure_The barometric pressure [Pa] from Import epw component and Ladybug_Average Data or generic lists of numbers. If no value is connected here, the default pressure will be 101325 Pa, which is air pressure at sea level.Goo

Outputs

NameIDDescriptionType
OutreadMe!...String
Wet Bulb TempwetBulbTempThe lowest temperature that can be reached by evaporating water into the air.Goo
Dew Point TempdewPointTempThe temperature at which the water vapor contained in a volume of air at a given atmospheric pressure reaches saturation and condenses to form dew.Goo
