Abstract

Computer simulations have become a popular means in analyzing building efficiency and HVAC system design, control and management. In this paper energy consumption of an office building in Hong Kong was simulated by the program HTB2. The dynamic simulation method - heat balance method was used to predict the peripheral and interior zones cooling load and air temperature. The simulation results achieved by dynamic hourly calculation of the performance of the building in a year attempted to provide useful technical information for the design of an air-conditioning system and the choice of the equipments and plants.
