leaf Design issues

To deal with advanced design issues, a building performance simulation software should be able to handle:
  • Overheating studies of highly insulated, glazed and naturally ventilated buildings
  • Realistic HVAC and plants, including CHP, solar, thermal storage, phase change and sorption processes
  • Complex control strategies
  • Advanced active façades

 


 

leaf Reliable results

For reliable results, a building performance simulation software should meet the following criteria:
  • Correct account of thermal mass effects
  • Detailed description of the building envelope, systems and controls
  • Multi-zone models
  • Dynamic time-steps
  • Results can be compared with measured data

 


 

leaf Basic requirements

Any building performance simulation software should meet the following criteria:
  • Calculate correctly and be possible to validate
  • Enable efficient information input and verification
  • Be robust
  • Be adaptable to non-standard problem types
  • Be transparent (possible to view and understand the mathematical models)
  • Provide easy result analysis
