Cooling load energy estimation
|Issue Date:||1997||Citation:||Chou, S.K.,Chang, W.L. (1997). Large building cooling load and energy use estimation. International Journal of Energy Research 21 (2) : 169-183. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||We present a methodology for developing a set of cooling load and energy estimating equations for large commercial buildings. The methodology is developed from parametric simulations on the DOE-2 computer code for any given generic building type and annual weather data file of the location. The equations estimate the annual cooling energy use of a building, its peak cooling load and the sensible cooling load. Correlations are obtained using the concept of the overall thermal transfer value of building envelopes and the number of cooling degree-days in a year. Other key variables include space internal loads, design outdoor-indoor temperature difference, and the global efficiency of chiller plants. The set of simple equations are validated using results obtained from DOE-2 simulations of audited actual buildings. © 1997 by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.||Source Title:||International Journal of Energy Research||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/58426||ISSN:||0363907X|
