The \$\Psi\$-value represents the difference between the thermally interrupted component and the uninterrupted component that is assumed for the balance. First the heat flow or the conductance \$L_{2d}\$ is determined by means of the heat flow simulation. To determine the \$\Psi\$-value,​ \$L_{0}\$ is deducted from the conductance of the uninterrupted building component. It is essential that the linear reference is adhered to all throughout. If interior references are used in the context of energy balancing, then \$\Psi\$-values based on interior references must also be used. However, exterior dimensions are used more often in practice as these can easily be taken from plans and measurements. Exterior dimensions are therefore consistently used in the [[planung:energieeffizienz_ist_berechenbar:​energiebilanzen_mit_dem_phpp|PHPP]]. + The principle for calculating the linear thermal transmittance is depicted in the illustration below.
