Implementation and application of a new Bi-directional solar modelling method for complex facades within the ESP-r building simulation program

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • This paper provides an overview of a new method for

    modelling the total solar energy transmittance. It is

    implemented in the ESP-r building simulation

    program to model complex façades such as double

    glazed façades with external, internal or integrated

    shading devices. This new model has been validated

    and tested for several cases. The new model required

    changes to the solar control simulation algorithm and

    the user interface, so a new “Advanced optics menu”

    was also introduced into ESP-r.

    The paper presents the interface development and

    application of the new technique to different

    simulation configurations (especially different

    complex façades with shading devices) in a standard

    office building.
