Energy Simulation


energy simulation


Energy simulation, also called energy modeling, is the use of software to predict the energy use of a building.

A typical energy model will have inputs for climate; envelope; internal gains from lighting, equipment, and occupants; heating, cooling, and ventilation systems; schedules of occupants, equipment, and lighting.Energy models will output building energy use predictions in typical end-use categories: heating, cooling, lighting, fan, plug, process.
