Lightpad 2.0 : a portable audit and design (pad) tool for evaluating retrofit lighting options | 1995 | English
The EPRI LightPAD program is a simple but powerful lighting audit and analysis tool for assessing installed lighting systems and proposing cost-effective, energy-efficient retrofit alternatives.
Data for convective heat transfer coefficients (CHTC's) published in the literature tend to be for anisolated heated vertical plate, with few data based on measurements at room surfaces Accurate values of CHTC's for internal room surfaces are need
Examples on application of system simulation in preplanning, sizing and comissioning of HVAC systems are briefly given and typical obstacles for a more broader utilization in engineering offices are introduced.
The current models of boilers and furnaces which are used in HVAC system simulation programs are primarily concerned with calculating the heat output of the device and its fuel consumption.
Automatic generation of complex simulation models of buildings with solar heating systems | 1995 | English
Comprehensive studies of the energy saving potential for buildings will often not be performed in a design phase - especially not for renovation projects.
Intelligent computer control of air conditioning systems based on genetic algorithm and classifier system | 1995 | English
Conventional control schernes for air condítioning systems are in lack of the capabilities to adapt to a changing enviroranent and to optimize against given criteria.
Computer-aided training of bioclimatic architectural design : experience with teachware for building performance prediction | 1995 | English
"Bioclimatic Architecture" offers adequate inner thermal comfort for human use, while, responding to the climatic outdoor conditions with reduced heating and cooling loads. This demand. asks for prediction.
A methodology is presented for creating models which are suitable for use in fault detection and diagnosis schernes in applications where it is impossible to obtain data from the actual plant.
DOE-2 is arguably the most complex and comprehensive building energy simulation program available. However, not even DOE-2 addresses ali situations encountered in commercial office buildings.
This paper discusses a detailed building energy simulation model that has been made available to thebuilding designer through a graphic user interface.
The paper describes a component-based dynamic simulation of a variable air volume (VAV) air conditioning system. The model is based closely on the design of one floor of a real commercial office building in London.
There are two almost orthogonal aspects that need to be considered when looking at the use of design tools by the profession, the integration of the design tools "around" the product being designed and the integration of the tools "into" the proce
Comparison of cost and energy savings in an existing large building as predicted by three simulation programs | 1995 | English
Three energy analysis programs (BESA-Desian, PC-BLAST and MICRO-DOE2. 1 D) were used by threeresearchers to evaluate the energy and cost savings in a larae existing office building located in Montreal.
In computer simulation, accurate modelling of air conditioning equipment is important in the studies of dynamic plant performance, for instance in the selection process of a plant control scherne, in the investigation of plant energy consumptions,
The ability to integrate a range of disparate design tools has been an area of intense research throughout the world.
In order to improve upon previous calibration techniques, this paper presents new calibration methodsincluding a temperature bin analysis to improve hourly x-y scatter plots, a 24-hour weatherdaytype bin analysis to allow for the evaluation of hou
Description induced by modelisation methods in the case of building thermal simulation | 1995 | English
Two main modelisation techniques are the analytic and systemic methods. After a presentation of each method applied to building simulation, this paper emphases the benefit of systemic modelisation for multizone cases.
Implications of room air motion on control of thermal comfort in rooms with natural convection heat sources | 1995 | English
Electric and hydronic baseboard heating systems rely on natural-convection-driven air motion to distribute energy throughout a space to maintain thermal comfort. For electric baseboard heating systems employing an on/off control scherne, the room
