TRNSYS 16.1: Neuerungen und Anwendung des ANSI/ASHRAE Standards 140-2001 (BESTEST)

M. Hiller, D.E. Bradley, T.P. McDowell

Abstract: Throughout its thirty year history, the transient energy package simulation package TRNSYS (Klein, S.A. et al., 2006) has been under continual enhancement by an internal group. Especially for software developers it is important to constantly validate their software using high quality published test suites. Those validation procedures can serve to identify different problems in simulation software: modeling and coding errors, missing features, frequent sources of user confusion. This paper briefly describes a subset of the features that were added to the simulation package with the release of its 16ᵗʰ version. The authors applied the validation procedures of ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 140-2001 (ASHRAE, 2001) to TRNSYS 16.1. The validation suite which is based on the IEA BESTEST (Judkoff und Neumark, 1995) concerns the building envelope and allows the developers to compare their programs with the 8 simulation tools originally tested, as well as with more recent results. The experiences and selected results are presented in this paper.
