Calibrating DOE-2 to Weather and Non-Weather-Dependent Loads for a Commercial Building: Data Processing Routines to Calibrate a DOE-2 Model, Volume II
MetadataShow full item record
DOE-2 yields hourly data on specific variables provided the user specifies the HOURLY-REPORT instruction. Analyzing the simulation results with hourly data gives a more detailed picture of how well the model is predicting the monitored energy consumption. The difficulties of using hourly data to calibrate a model are the extraction of data from DOE-2's well documented output reports and processing the data into graphs which are meaningful. This chapter demonstrates the data processing routines that extract hourly end-use energy consumption and weather data from DOE-2's hourly output reports and process the data into three-dimensional plots and temperature-specific humidity carpet plots.
