More Issues of Building Energy Simulation
MetadataShow full item record
The paper investigates the development of building energy simulation software. It is shown that such applications can be used for energy forecasting, system design and operations, and energy evaluation. Several energy simulation methods are analyzed and compared, and the predominance of the Z-transfer function method is indicated on dynamic calculation of energy consumption of heating and air-conditioning systems. The paper discusses the means to deal with several complex problems, such as thermal bridge, external sunshade, and meteorological data.
