Abstract: CALIBRATION OF MODELS WITH MICROSHADE Søren Østergaard Jensen Danish Technological Institut, Energy and Climate Division Gregersensvej, DK-2630 Taastrup, Denmark The model of MicroShade is a matrix where the total direct transmission, the absorption in each layer of This paper deals with the calibration of models capable of simulating the performance of MicroShadeTM. The function of MicroShade is similar to Venetian blinds, however, MicroShade is a microstructure embedded in a metal foil with a thickness of less than one mm. MicroShade has been modelled using a novel module in ESP-r for modelling bidirectional transmission through transparent multilayered constructions. Windows with and without MicroShade have been tested in two dedicated test rooms. The measurements from the test rooms have been used to calibrate the model of MicroShade. Finally simulations are used to show how MicroShade will perform in a real building.
