The folder \Sec5-3AFiles\Normative Materials contains the following electronic files for use with the Space Cooling Equipment Performance Analytical Verification Tests of Sections 5.3.1 and 5.3.2.

  • CE100A.TM2: TMY2 weather data with constant ODB = 46.1 C
  • CE100.TMY: TMY weather data with constant ODB = 46.1 C
  • CE110A.TM2: TMY2 weather data with constant ODB = 29.4 C
  • CE110.TMY: TMY weather data with constant ODB = 29.4 C
  • CE165A.TM2: TMY2 weather data with constant ODB = 40.6 C
  • CE165.TMY: TMY weather data with constant ODB = 40.6 C
  • CE200A.TM2: TMY2 weather data with constant ODB = 35.0 C
  • CE200.TMY: TMY weather data with constant ODB = 35.0 C
  • The formats of TMY and TMY2 data are described in Annex A1 of the Standard.

  • CE100MAP.XLS: Mechanical equipment performance data (Tables 5-38 through 5-43).

  • Sec5-3Aout.XLS: Spreadsheet Standard Output Report for entering results. Instructions for the Standard Output Reports are included in Annex A2 of the Standard.

  • S140outNotes.TXT: Standard Output Report for entering modeling notes. Instructions for the Standard Output Reports are included in Annex A2 of the Standard. See S140outNotes_Examples.TXT (in the corresponding “\Informative Materials” subfolder) for example modeling notes.

The folder \Sec5-3AFiles\Informative Materials contains the following electronic files for use with the Space Cooling Equipment Performance Analytical Verification Tests of Sections 5.3.1 and 5.3.2.

  • RESULTS5-3A.PDF: File with the example results as described in Informative Annex B16, Section B16.5.1 of the Standard.

  • RESULTS5-3A.XLSX: Spreadsheet that contains the example results indicated in Informative Annex B16, Section B16.5.1 of the Standard. New results can be added to this file and will be automatically included in the summary tables and figures to facilitate comparison with the example results. This file is described in Informative Annex B10.

  • RESULTS5-3A.DOCX: Documentation for navigating RESULTS5-3A.XLSX

  • S140outNotes_Examples.TXT: Example modeling notes.

The subfolder \InputFiles5-3A contains input files for some of the IEA participant results listed in Informative Annex B16.

README-BEFORE-VIEWING-INPUT-FILES.DOCX: Review this file before opening the input files.

The following lower-tier subfolders contain input files used for the listed simulation program’s example results.

  • Subfolder: Simulation Program
  • \DOE2-CIEMAT: DOE-2.1E-088 (ESTSC release)
  • \DOE2-NREL: DOE-2.1E-133 (JJHirsch release)
  • \ENERGYPLUS: ENERGYPLUS 1.0.0.023
  • \TRNSYS-TUD: TRNSYS 14.2-TUD

The IEA participants that ran TRNSYS-TUD simulations provided only one input file with their results. IEA participants that ran simulations for CA-SIS and CLIM2000 did not supply input files with their results.
