Task 22

Subtasks

In order to accomplish the stated goal and objectives, the Participants carried out research in the framework of two Subtasks during the initial phase of the Task:

  • Subtask A: Tool Evaluation
  • Subtask B: Model Documentation

During a Task Extension Phase, the Participants will focus on two new Subtasks:

  • Subtask C: Comparative Evaluation
  • Subtask D: Empirical Validation

Subtask C: Comparative Evaluation
In Subtask C, the Participants shall:

  • Establish an overall building energy analysis tool diagnostic framework.
  • Identify reasonable set of test cases.
  • Prepare preliminary test case specifications.
  • Apply building energy analysis tools to test cases.
  • Revise/finalize test case specifications.
  • Iterate with building energy analysis tools as appropriate and required to obtain valid results.
  • Finalize results.
  • Prepare documentation of test cases/results.
  • Place test specifications and results on IEA SHC web site.

Subtask D: Empirical Validation
In Subtask D, the Participants shall:

  • Establish an overall experimental framework.
  • Identify reasonable set of experiments to evaluate the modeling capability and accuracy of building energy analysis tools.
  • Conduct experiments.
  • Apply building energy analysis tools to model experimental conditions.
  • Revise experimental conditions to obtain necessary quality of data.
  • Iterate as necessary between modeling and experiments to obtain valid empirical tests.
  • Prepare documentation of experiments and results.
  • Place data and results on IEA SHC web site.
