Comparison of Building Energy Modeling Programs: HVAC Systems
This technical report summarizes methodologies, processes, and main assumptions of three building energy modeling programs (BEMPs) for HVAC calculations: EnergyPlus, DeST, and DOE-2.1E. This is a joint effort between Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA and Tsinghua University, China. It is part of a research project under the five-year collaborative research program of the U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Center for Building Energy Efficiency (CERC-BEE). Energy Foundation, an industrial partner of the CERC-BEE, is the co-sponsor of this work.
