TEST REFERENCE YEARS (TRY) WEATHER DATA SETS FOR COMPUTER SIMULATIONS OF SOLAR ENERGY SYSTEMS AND ENERGY CONSUMPTION IN BUILDINGS
A "Test Reference Year' (TRY) is composed of hourly weather data for 12 typical months, forming a year. It is used in simulation of the performance of active and passive solar energy systems, building energy consumption and indoor climate calculations. A TRY contains hourly values of a number of weather parameters, which are important for the above-mentioned purposes. The most important weather parameters have monthly mean values and monthly and diurnal variations typical for the location. Because of the large amount of data, 8760 hourly sets of many weather parameters, TRYs are used only in connection with computerized calculation methods, and they are therefore delivered on magnetic tape. A TRY is valid for a limited geographical area only, and 29 TRYs are now produced covering all EC areas, except Germany and Greece.
