SIMULATION OF DOUBLE-SKIN FACADES FOR HOT AMD HUMID CLIMATE
Matthias Hasse, Alex Amato
Thermal building simulations (TRNSYS) were linked to nodal airflow network simulations (COMIS) for airflow window and solar chimney performance calculation and overall energy consumption for office building facades. Especially interesting was the attempt to reduce the high peak cooling loads during the summer period by controlling the exhaust airflow using a climate sensitive regulator. It could be shown that up to 30% reduction of peak loads can be achieved. This results in significant energy conservations and a reduction in systems cooling size.
