Improved Building Energy Performance Modelling through Comparison of Measured Data with Simulated Results
MetadataShow full item record
This work forms part of the ModBen project conducted by Fraunhofer ISE. This paper aims to compare actual detailed hourly building energy data from a non-residential, demonstration building located in Berlin, with results simulated using IDA-ICE for the same building. The dataset collected at the demonstration building consists of total energy consumption, weather data, indoor conditions and HVAC system parameters, measured in at least hourly time steps. This paper presents the first steps in modelling the building and comparing simulated results to the measured data. The simulated building energy performance results achieved in the first stage of computer modelling show a reasonable correlation with measured data, however, further work is required to create a building model that describes reality to a level suitable for optimisation of controls and various studies on fault detection and diagnosis.
