Simulation model to find the best comfort, energy and cost scenarios for building refurbishment

This article proposes a methodology to assess building behaviour, whilst taking its life cycle into account. Understanding of the system can be obtained by combining well-known energy consumption calculation engines (TRNSYS) with co-simulation processes defined using Specification and Description Language … Continue reading Simulation model to find the best comfort, energy and cost scenarios for building refurbishment
