In this thesis, a heater-integrated floor material and its possibilities in the field of floor heating were examined. The heater was designed to be manufactured by transfer foil technology. LTSpice and COMSOL simulation tools were utilized to model power losses and heating power, and three different heater versions were designed with Altium designer, and their simulation results and other properties of the heaters were compared. The main goal of the work was to find out the possibility of making floor heating for large surface areas from these heating panels and it was found that it would be possible to make over 100m² surfaces with under 1 ºC tolerance for the desired heating temperature.

Siirtokalvotekniikalla valmistettavan sähköisen lattialämmityspaneelin suunnittelu


Tässä työssä tarkasteltiin siirtokalvotekniikalla valmistettavan lämmitysvastuksen integroimista lattiamateriaaliin ja sen mahdollisuuksia lattialämmityksen saralla. Työssä hyödynnettiin LTSpice- ja COMSOL-simulointityökaluja lämmitystehon ja tehohäviöiden mallinnukseen ja piirrettiin Altiumilla kolme eri lämmitinversiota ja vertailtiin niiden simulointituloksia sekä lämmittimien muita ominaisuuksia. Työn tärkeimpänä tavoitteena oli selvittää mahdollisuutta tehdä lämmityspaneeleista lattialämmitys suurille lattiapinta-aloille. Saatiin selville, että näillä lämmityspaneeleilla olisi mahdollista tehdä yli 100m² lattiapintoja alle yhden asteen toleranssilla halutulle lämpötilalle.
