A Models of User Behaviour for Large Apartment Buildings: Analysing the Usage of Domestic Appliances and Their Variations

Hyunju Jang

Abstract: This paper aims to analyse the uncertainties of user behaviour for building simulation with large apartments in South Korea. The usages of domestic appliances and building systems were used to analyse the characters and variations of users‟ controls with Monte Carlo method. The results showed up to 30.6% and 47.8% of uncertainties for heating and cooling demands by individual parameters. The combined effects of individual variables demonstrated 23.8% and 52.4% of uncertainties in heating and cooling demands.
Keywords: Uncertainty analysis, user behaviour, large apartments, building simulation
