CONVERGING ON A RECOMMENDED SET OF INTERPRETATIONS AND ASSUMPTIONS IN APPLYING STANDARD TESTS TO ENERGY ANALYSIS TOOLS

David Bradley, Michaël Kummert, Timothy Mcdowell

Abstract: The authors, having individually applied ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 140-2001 to the simulation program TRNSYS in a previous project, compare their results, simulation assumptions, and interpretations of the Standard's test cases to arrive at a conformed set of recommended practices. Sensitivities to individual assumptions are investigated and results of applying the conformed set of assumptions are presented.
