DEVELOPMENT OF A BASIC STATISTICAL WEATHER MODEL VALID IN EUROPE FOR DESIGN AND ENERGY CALCULATIONS
Under contract ESF-010-80-NL-(B) an automatic procedure to generate a synthetic weather model of the outdoor climate, based on its statistical properties, has been developed. This synthetic model generates short reference years of various locations. This investigation is a continuation of the former project. It concerns the development of a basic weather model that generates local short reference years of various locations, the parameter of which only depends on locally measured daily values. This has been done by modifying some components in the synthetic weather model and by the use of mathematical expressions rather than measured values. Local short reference years of The Netherlands, Belgium and Denmark have been generated and these are tested by the energy calculation program BA4 and the domestic solar hot water system program BENCHMARK, as has been used in the final report of contract ESF-010-80-NL-(B). The test conditions are the same too. The results are comparable to the original version which generates short reference years based on the analysis of the real measured data. The results for design conditions can only be interpreted qualitatively.
