The impact of user and system assumptions on energy simulation results

Kristina Kiesel, Kristina Orehounig, Ardeshir Mahdavi

Abstract: Using the example of an existing office building, the present paper explores the influence of different simulation input assumptions such as set point temperatures and ventilation behavior on the heating load of a building. Moreover, heating load simulation results with empirically-based input assumptions are compared with simulation that use standardized input assumptions.
