Abstract

A brand-new methodology for considerably accurate time-series cooling load calculation in a dwelling is established, motivated by the fact that dwelling energy requirements so significantly affect the so-called urban heat island. Calculation that takes variation among dwelling-inhabitants' behaviors into consideration appears to be important. The proposed method contains two crucial features. The first is a procedure for cooling load calculation based on a series of Monte Carlo simulations where HVAC on/ off state and indoor heat generation schedule are variable time-step by time-step. The second feature is an algorithm to generate myriad schedule data of each inhabitant's behavior that must be provided with fine time resolution.
