Higher heating value[edit]

The quantity known as higher heating value (HHV) (or gross energy or upper
heating value or gross calorific value (GCV) or higher calorific value (HCV)) is
determined by bringing all the products of combustion back to the original pre-
combustion temperature, and in particular condensing any vapor produced. Such
measurements often use a standard temperature of 15 C (59 F; 288 K).

Lower heating value[edit]

The quantity known as lower heating value (LHV) (net calorific value (NCV)
or lower calorific value (LCV)) is determined by subtracting the heat of
vaporization of the water vapor from the higher heating value. This treats any
H2O formed as a vapor. The energy required to vaporize the water therefore is
not released as heat.

LHV calculations assume that the water component of a combustion process is in

vapor state at the end of combustion, as opposed to the higher heating
value (HHV) (a.k.a. gross calorific value or gross CV) which assumes that all of
the water in a combustion process is in a liquid state after a combustion process.

The LHV assumes that the latent heat of vaporization of water in the fuel and the
reaction products is not recovered. It is useful in comparing fuels where
condensation of the combustion products is impractical, or heat at a temperature
below 150 C (302 F) cannot be put to use.

Gross heating value

Gross heating value (see AR) accounts for water in the exhaust leaving
as vapor, and includes liquid water in the fuel prior to combustion. This value
is important for fuels like wood or coal, which will usually contain some
amount of water prior to burning.
