COMPUTER MODELING OF BUILDING ENERGY CONSUMPTION IN A TYPICAL HOUSE IN OSHAWA, ONTARIO

Yaolin Lin, Kamiel Gabriel

Abstract: A mathematical model was developed to predict the building energy and electricity consumption based on several parameters including occupants' behavior as related to window opening, variation of thermostat set point temperature, window shading schemes, and use of electrical appliances. Simulation results from the computer program were verified from comparison of the building thermal load with simulation results from ESP-r, comparison of the air infiltration rates with simulation results from CFD modeling and comparison of the electricity usage with measurements reported in the open literature. Preliminary results of the total energy and CO 2 emissions of a typical house in Oshawa under different occupants' behavior schemes are also presented in this paper.
