Application of Various HVAC Simulation Programs and Visual Tools to Commissioning
MetadataShow full item record
Various existing HVAC system simulation programs and visualization tools are considered to be potentially powerful tools for commissioning. Although not originally developed as commissioning tools, these programs facilitate the confirmation/comparison of HVAC system function and performance and enable detailed analysis of parameters influencing HVAC system performance. This paper investigates the functionality and ease of use of several such programs in support of the commissioning process. The investigation and assessment of simulation programs includes: Micro HASP, Micro ACSS, FACES, LCEM, HVACSIM+, TRNSYS, DOE-2, EnergyPlus and DeST and their visual tools.
