This is a draft of the Final Report in the ASHRAE RP-1093 project that, first summarizes the work completed during the scheduled Phase I and Phase II (presented to the PMSC in Seattle - June 1999, and Dallas February 2000), and reports on the progress during the scheduled Phase III effort (Table 1). It should be noted that the PMSC approved a one-year extension after the May-2000-Completion-date noted in Table 1. Tables 2 and 3 show the buildings that were approved by the PMSC in previous meetings.
DescriptionDuring this phase of the project, we finalized the daytyping method to be followed, and started processing the data sets previously approved by the PMSC. So far, we processed a total of 23 buildings (ESL). The final product will include typical load shapes and diversity factors from 27 Office Buildings monitored by ESL and 9 Office Buildings provided by LBNL (Energy-Edge Buildings). If time allows, we will process 28 additional buildings provided to us by PNNL. These additional buildings were monitored under the ELCAP project. We prepared typical templates (with Microsoft Word) to describe each building along with the corresponding results of the analysis. Mr. Micheal Witte, from Gard Analytics, helped us in writing the BLAST input files, and he also automated the procedure of copying the results from EXCEL to the WORD templates. Table 4 shows the final set of buildings that are currently analysed.
