SHORT REFERENCE YEARS - SHORT WEATHER DATA SETS FOR FASTER SIMULATIONS OF SOLAR ENERGY SYSTEMS AND ENERGY CONSUMPTION IN BUILDINGS
Within the framework of the Commission of the European Communities' Solar Energy R&D programme under the contract No ESF 029 DK, Short reference years (SRYs) have been produced for a number of locations in the Community. SRYs are, like Test reference years (TRYs) used as input data for computer simulation of heating or cooling loads in buildings, solar energy systems, energy consumption and indoor climate. With a substantial reduction in computer time, SRYs give nearly the same results as TRYs. They are, however, less suited for determination of extreme temperatures, or simulation of solar systems with long storage times. SRYs have been produced for 29 locations in 7 member countries of the Community. The appendix gives some numerical values which characterize the resulting SRYs.
