ESTABLISHMENT OF SHORT REFERENCE YEARS FOR CALCULATION OF ANNUAL SOLAR HEAT GAIN OR ENERGY CONSUMPTION IN RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS
The aim of the project is to develop an automatic procedure for the generation of Short Reference Years of various locations in the European Communities using hourly measured weather data on tape. This project is part of Action 2 (Short Years) of Project F (Solar Radiation Data). In Action 2 four institutions, Denmark (2), the Netherlands and Italy, participate in the development of methods for the generation of Short Reference Years. In The Netherlands a synthetical weather model, called the Dutch Short Reference Year, has been developed. This model is adopted as a standard for energy calculations in The Netherlands. The procedure, described in this report, is based on the same approach as the Dutch Short Reference Year, namely analysing the weather variables and giving its relations by mathematical equations. But instead of determining these relations by empirical equations, they are now determined by polynomials. The procedure involves the following steps: analysing the weather variables, modelling the weather variations, determining the statistical properties and generating new hourly values of the weather variables - The Short Reference Year (SRY) - by means of random generators.
