Problems for Energy Certification of Complex Buildings Through Simplified Methods

Gözde Gali, A. Zerrin Yılmaz

Abstract: Energy certification methods are usually simplified methodologies in national level of certification. When it comes to complex buildings the impact of simplification of the simulation tool is crucial. This study focuses on the differences between ‘Simple Hourly Dynamic Calculation Method’ and ‘Detailed Dynamic Calculation Method’. Complexity level of the building has a significant effect on heating and cooling energy demand of the building. In this study, this effect of the complex buildings is analyzed through hospital buildings. Turkish national energy performance simulation tool (BEP-TR) and internationally recognized simulation tool EnergyPlus are used in the analysis.
