Existing concepts such as variable base degree days and the monthly averaged solar utilizability are applied to the cooling problem. New solar utilizability correlations for multiple aperture solar collectors are used in conjunction with the variable base degree-day method to predict the sensible component of the cooling load for low mass Cited by: Sterling, R., G.

The continuing importance of energy conservation in the building sector has drawn major attention to energy audits of existing buildings in different climates. In this paper, the energy conservation potential of a residential building located in Iran’s cold climate was investigated through an analysis of its actual energy consumption and through computer by: 1.

book. A Division of Midwest Research Institute Cole BoulevardFile Size: KB. Degree day calculations won't give you results to the nearest BTU and probably not even to the nearest BTU no matter how good a job you do choosing the base temperature.

Bin weather data for simplified energy calculations and variable base degree day information (ASHRAE research project) Unknown Binding – January 1, Author: Larry O Degelman. The heating and cooling degree-days with variable-base temperatures for Turkey are determined using long-term measured data.

Base temperatures of 14, 16, 18, 20, and 22°C are chosen in the calculation of heating degree-days. Base temperatures of 18, 20, 22, 24, 26 or 28°C are used in the determination of cooling by:   What is a degree day. Degree days are measures of how cold or warm a location is.

A degree day compares the mean (the average of the high and low) outdoor temperatures recorded for a location to a standard temperature, usually 65° Fahrenheit (F) in the United States. The more extreme the outside temperature, the higher the number of degree days. For example, in the US we typically use a base temperature of 65° F when calculating heating degree days.

(More about that in part 2 of this series on degree days.) If the temperature stays constant at 64° F for one full day, that would give us one heating degree day (HDD). If the temperature is 60° F for a full day, we get 5 HDD. Got it. (The 2 degrees is because 15°C is 2 degrees below the base temperature of 17°C, and the days are because to is half a day.

We calculate the heating degree days for each period in the day, and then add them together to get the total for that day: ). data in variable base degree day format) and the actual monthly consumption (Table 1, Column S) as the Y variable.

Using Excel, under the tools menu choose Data Analysis and pick Regression. Excel asks for two variables, X and Y. The final step is to create the three parameter model from the regression for each base temperature. Abstract. The traditional year-old degree-day formula used for estimating house-heating energy requirements has become out-moded.

Consequently, GPU Service (1) analyzed the theory behind the formula and the reported inaccuracies in the calculations, (2) developed a correction factor for net heating requirements vs. degree days, and (3) isolated the apparent effect of furnace oversizing in. Degree day calculations won’t give you results to the nearest BTU and probably not even to the nearest 1, BTU no matter how good a job you do choosing the base temperature.

It’s an approximate calculation, and it’s the relative changes that matter more than the. The measured heating consumption of houses in all regions of the United States is compared with the consumption predicted by the variable-base degree-day (VBDD) method.

It is found that the VBDD method correctly predicts for the group of houses where the average heating season temperature is at least 10 F greater than the balance temperature. Compares the measured heating consumption of houses in all regions of the USA with the consumption predicted by the Variable Base Degree Day method (VBDD).

Finds that the VBDD method correctly predicts. Heating degree day (HDD) is a measurement designed to quantify the demand for energy needed to heat a building. HDD is derived from measurements of outside air heating requirements for a given building at a specific location are considered to be directly proportional to the number of HDD at that location.

Related measurements include the cooling degree day (CDD), which. The intended use of these data is for input to recently developed models for simplified energy calculations and for generating variable-base degree-day information.

The primary purpose of the research project was to produce bin weather data from ASHRAE’s WYEC (Weather Year for Energy Calculations) tapes so that simplified energy calculations. This paper provides a historical perspective on the methods used to analyze measured energy use in commercial buildings.

It summarizes the capabilities and uncertainties of the regression methods used in most M&V applications today and the calibrated simulation approaches used for M&V, commissioning, and end-use by: The degree-day values are estimated by using different methods for variable base temperatures for each climatic zone and the variation in the degree-day values are analyzed.

Generalized equations are developed by using multiple regression technique to estimate the degree-days and those satisfy the statistical tests are proposed. by: Efforts to improve the degree-day method, such as by using variable base temperatures, calculating degree-hours instead of days, etc., are described in the following section.

The gains in accuracy from these modifications have been offset by increased difficulty in computation, nearly always requiring a computer program.

Regional variations of monthly degree–days are mapped and their relations to.In pursuit of development of simplified energy calculation methodologies, seasonal performance models for residential heating and cooling systems were developed. Previous studies have shown that the variable-base degree-day (VBDD) method renders results close to those generated by hourly models.
