The Solar Contribution to the Energy Use for Heating of Residential Buildings
2004 (English)In: Proceedings of the CIB World Building Congress, 2004Conference paper (Refereed)
The energy use of residential buildings in cold and mild climates with the influence of the solar gaincan be simulated with the support of TEKLA 2.0. The model is adjusted to single-zone buildings thathave a uniform internal temperature. The calculations are based on the standard EN 832, whichincorporates dated or undated references and provisions from other publications. The predicted resultscorrespond well with the measured data from a monitored occupied residential reference building InUmeå, Sweden.A parameter study was made with TEKLA 2.0 on simulated data of the reference building for climateconditions in Umeå, Kiruna and Lund, Sweden. It indicates that the parameters that have the mostinfluence on the thermal performance of the building according to the components are the U-value ofthe wall, the thickness of roof insulation and the U-value of windows. The parameters that have themost influence on the solar gain are the daily average global solar radiation and the directions of thewindows provided.
