Mögliche Vereinfachungen bei der energetischen Simulation von Wohngebäuden in TRNSYS 17

Alvaro de Andres, Xenia Schäfer

Abstract: It is almost impossible to simulate a complete building in detail, due to the great effort and the long simulation time required for this purpose. This paper considers how to simplify the simulation of an apartment building without affecting the accuracy of the results. A typical German apartment building is simulated in TRNSYS 17 using different simplification methods. The results from each one are compared with a reference case in which every single room represents a separated thermal zone.
