Advanced Test Methods for Pellet Stoves

Oct 2022

Report on consequences of real-life operation on stove performance, written by Gabriel Reichert and Christoph Schmidl, and edited by Morten Tony Hansen.

The overall objective of this report is the provision of an overview on different test methods for pellet stoves. These are either already implemented as an official test standard, or (up to now) only used in science as testing procedures to evaluate the performance of such technologies.

Pellet stoves refer to direct room heating appliances which can be categorized in several different technologies. This report focuses on pellet stoves classified according to the European standard EN 14785. In detail, the priority is set on pellet stoves for room heat supply only (warm air).
