Validierung von Gebäudesimulationssoftware: Aktuelle Aktivitäten von IEA Task 34 / Annex 43

Clemens Felsmann

Abstract: This paper gives an insight into recent activities in the field of validation of building energy simulation programs. For that purpose the substantial work contents and some results of the joint project Task34/Annex43 supported by the International Energy Agency (IEA) will be presented. In the framework of this project methods have been developed for the validation of multi-zone buildings, daylighting and shading devices, double-skin façades, and HVAC systems. The test methods are based on the comparison of simulation results with real experimental data or on the comparison of simulation programs against each other. Analytical solutions have been developed where it was possible. This IEA project has been finished in 2008.
