Thermal Performance Simulation of Complex Fenestration Systems in the Early Design Stage

Steffen Petersen, Thea Broholt, Louise Christensen, Pil Brix Purup

Abstract: The objective of this paper was to contribute to the development of fast yet precise building energy modelling in tools that are fit to conform to the dynamic processes of the early stage of building design. To this end, a new fast yet precise algorithm for solar heat gain through complex fenestration systems was developed. Documentation provided in this paper suggests that the new algorithm is relevant for any thermal simulation tool that seeks to provide the option of fast and precise hourly thermal simulation of dynamically controlled complex fenestration systems in the early stage of building design.
