Modeling of Residential Buildings and Heating Systems
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of the paper is to illustrate the possibilities offered by modelassisted commissioning in residential buildings. Three examples are considered: two small detached houses and a large multi-storey dwelling building. A static multi-zone building model is used in each case. A model of the heating system is also used for the multi-storey building. Both co-heating and tracer gas measurements are used in order to adjust the parameters of each building model. A complete monitoring of the central heating plant, with measurements of water temperatures and flow rates is used to adjust the parameters of the boiler model.
