Multizone Residential HVAC Modeling

Andrew Poerschke, Stacey Rothgeb (NREL Technical Monitor), Conor Dennehy (NREL Technical Monitor)

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


This report will evaluate several building physics modeling tools to determine which are best suited for developing next-generation zoning technology. These modeling tools will be evaluated for their ability to predict room-level thermal loads, HVAC system operation, temperature and comfort predictions, and scalability. Any gaps in the existing tools will be identified and a path forward will be discussed.
