COMPARATIVE SIMULATION OF A HIGH PERFORMANCE BUILDING WITH EE4-DOE2.1E AND ENERGYPLUS

Zhen Tian, Wei Tian, James Love

Abstract: The University of Calgary's Child Development Center (CDC) is a 12,000m 2 new LEED Platinum building, for which building energy performance in the very cold" climate was a key design consideration. A Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) incentive program required that energy modeling be done with NRCan's EE4 user interface (DOE2.1E simulation engine) and following NRCan procedures. As DOE2.1E lacks specific features to simulate advanced systems such as radiant cooling that were included in the CDC
