A series of building energy simulation tools are being developed to help the building energy auditor in establishing his diagnosis (including benchmarking and detailed analysis of actual energy consumption) and in evaluating the selected energy conservation opportunities (ECOs). A first simulation tool, dedicated to benchmarking, has been presented in a previous paper. The present paper focuses on the second simulation tool, dedicated to inspection and evaluation of ECOs. This Building-HVAC… 

SIMULATION - ASSISTED AUDIT OF AN AIR CONDITIONED OFFICE BUILDING

The case study presented here concerns the audit of a typical, medium-size, office building erected in Brussels at the end of the sixties. This building is equipped with a classical old fashioned air
