GRAPHICAL TOOLS TO HELP CALIBRATE THE DOE-2 SIMULATION PROGRAM Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Many studies have reported on various efforts to calibrate building energy simulation programs to measured data from a real building. This paper describes the efforts to develop a graphical tool kit, a three-dimensional comparative plot routine that allows one to efficiently compare (and thus calibrate) DOE-2 (and eventually other programs such as BLAST) to measured non-weather-dependent loads from an existing building. This tool kit is demonstrated with measured data from a case study building in central Texas using simulated profiles form several different day-typing routines.
