CompositeWallConstructions.idf[LINK]

The Reference Data Set CompositeWallConstructions.idf contains constructions and associated materials for a set of composite walls. These are walls—such as stud walls—that have complicated heat-flow paths so that the conduction is two- or three-dimensional.

An example entry in this data set–for an insulated 2”x4” steel-stud wall–looks like:

CONSTRUCTION,Composite 2x4 Steel Stud R11,
  ! ASHRAE 1145-RP Wall Assembly 10
  ! 2"x4" steel studs at 24" on center with between-stud R11 fibreglass insulation.
  ! Studs are 3.5", 16 gauge, 15 flange.
  ! Layers are 1/2" wood siding, 1/2" plywood, 2x4 steel studs and R11 insulation, 1/2" gypsum board.
  ! Area-average R-Value = 8.796 ft2-F-h/Btu (1.548 m2-K/W).

The materials here are not real materials but are “equivalent” materials obtained from finite-difference modeling. The thickness, conductivity, density and specific heat values of the material layers for the different constructions have been taken from the ASHRAE report “Modeling Two- and Three-Dimensional Heat Transfer through Composite Wall and Roof Assemblies in Hourly Energy Simulation Programs (1145-TRP),” by Enermodal Engineering Limited, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and the Polish Academy of Sciences, January 2001. EnergyPlus will calculate conduction transfer functions using these materials. The heat transfer based on these conduction transfer functions will then be very close to what would be calculated with a two- or three-dimensional heat transfer calculation.

For stud walls, using these composite constructions will give more accurate heat flow than you would get by manually dividing the wall into a stud section and a non-stud section.

If your wall’s exterior or interior roughness or thermal, solar or visible absorptances are different from those in the data set, you can make the appropriate changes to the first material (the outside layer) or the third material (the inside layer). None of the other values should be changed.

For the curves provided, curve A has the highest limit and curve D has the lowest limit. These curve objects represent a single-point electronic enthalpy control curve with the curve object’s minimum value of x (temperature) crossing the psychrometric chart’s saturation line and the curve object’s maximum value of x crossing the psychrometric chart’s dry-bulb temperature axis. The curve object’s minimum (maximum) value of x should be just low (high) enough to ensure that the curve crosses the psychrometric chart’s saturation line (temperature axis). The curves are evaluated at an outdoor dry-bulb temperature to provide a maximum operating outdoor humidity ratio for economizer operation. If the outdoor humidity ratio is greater than this maximum value, economizer operation is terminated. These curves may be used with other economizer limits to create multi-point economizer control (Temperature Limit, Temperature Low Limit, Enthalpy Limit, and Dewpoint Temperature Limit).

Form of the Electronic Enthalpy Curve Equation:[LINK]

The electronic enthalpy curve equation represents a unique curve and is a function of both temperature and relative humidity. The equation is set equal to a constant which provides a unique temperature for each relative humidity entered into the equation. Each control curve has a unique constant as shown in the table below. Other constants may be used to develop specialized electronic enthalpy curves.

where:

  • K = Constant value to represent specific curve

  • T = Outdoor Dry-Bulb Temperature (C)

  • RH = Outdoor Relative Humidity (%)

NOTE: modifying the RH multiplier (-0.144599) tends to “wag” the curvature at the upper relative humidities. Decreasing the multiplier “wags” the upper portion of the curve downward, increasing “wags” it upwards. Modifying the constant (K) moves the intersection of the curve with the Dry-Bulb Temperature axis. Increasing the constant moves the intersection to the left as shown in the figure, decreasing moves to the right. The minimum and/or maximum x boundaries in the curve objects may have to be adjusted when modifying the equation.

Electronic Enthalpy Curve Constants and approximate control point at 50% RH
Control Curve Curve Constant K Approximate Control Point at 50% RH (ºC)
A 12 22.9
B 14 21.1
C 16 19.4
D 18 17.7

Example Curve A:[LINK]

The method described here was used to create each of the four “cubic” curve objects provided in the electronic enthalpy economizer control data set.

Step 1: Substitute the curve constant K for curve A (12) into the electronic enthalpy curve equation and solve for temperature. Then identify the outdoor air dry-bulb temperatures at known values of relative humidity (e.g., columns 1 and 2 in the table below). Psychrometric routines are helpful for this step.

Step 2: Identify humidity ratio at each point (e.g. column 3 in the following table). Psychrometric routines are helpful for this step.

Relative Humidity (%) Temperature (ºC) Calculated Humidity Ratio (kg/kg)
0 29.128 0.00000
10 27.877 0.00232
20 26.627 0.00433
30 25.376 0.00605
40 24.125 0.00750
50 22.874 0.00872
60 21.623 0.00971
70 20.372 0.01051
80 19.121 0.01112
90 17.871 0.01158
100 16.620 0.01189

Step 3: Use multiple linear regression to solve one of the following equations:

Quadratic Curve: Humidity Ratio = A0 + A1*Temperature + A2*Temperature

Cubic Curve: Humidity Ratio = A0 + A1*Temperature + A2*Temperature + A3*Temperature

Step 4: Use the coefficients calculated in the multiple linear regression to create a cubic (or quadratic) curve object.

GHLERefData.idf[LINK]

This file contains sample input for the ground loop heat exchanger model. The response of the borehole/ground is found from the ‘G-function’ that is defined in the input as series of ‘n’ pairs of values (LNTTSn, GNFCn). It is important to note that the G-functions have to be calculated for specific GHE configurations and borehole resitance, length and borehole/ length ratio. That is, the parameters for the units vary with each design. The data in this file are intended as examples/samples and may not represent actual designs.

The sample data has been calculated for a number of configurations:

  • 1 x 2 boreholes

  • 4 x 4 boreholes

  • 8 x 8 boreholes

Data is given for both ‘standard’ grout (k = 0.744 W/m.K) and ‘thermally enhanced’ grout (k = 1.471 W/m.K). The flow rate per borehole is .1514 kg/s. The pipe given is 0.75in. Dia. SDR11 HDPE. The fluid is water. The borehole/length ratio is 0.06 (76.2m/4.572m [300ft/15ft])

PerfCurves.idf[LINK]

This file contains performance curves for various EnergyPlus equipment objects.

  • Variable speed DX cooling: These curves are appropriate for small DX cooling units with variable speed compressors. These curves would be referenced by the EnergyPlus object Coil:Cooling:DX:TwoSpeed. See the example input file 5ZoneAutoDXVAV for an example of their use.

  • Variable Speed Cooling Tower: These model coefficient objects are appropriate for use with the variable speed cooling tower object and represent the coefficients used in the YorkCalc and CoolTools empirical models. These model coefficient objects would be referenced by the EnergyPlus object Cooling Tower:Variable Speed. See the example input file CoolingTower_VariableSpeed.idf for an example of where these curves could be used (these model coefficient objects are not specifically used in this idf but could be used by the Cooling Tower:Variable Speed object). Additional information on variable speed cooling tower model coefficients can be found in the Input Output Reference and Engineering Reference documents.

  • Note that performance curves for the Electric EIR chiller and the Electric Reformulated EIR chiller are contained in the Chillers.idf dataset.

PrecipitationSchedulesUSA.idf[LINK]

This file contains schedules (for an entire year) of precipitation for use with the SitePrecipitation object. Use these schedules for adding rain water to the simulation. The values are in meters per hour and are scaled to match the average monthly precipitation. They also coincide with the EPW rain/snow flags from the original source files.

RefrigerationCasesDataSet.idf[LINK]

All the refrigerated cases included in this database are listed in the following list. Comments before each refrigeration:case object include the manufacturer’s model number and assumptions about the fan, lights, defrost etc. The user must ensure that the case names used in the idf file are UNIQUE and must supply the correct zone name. The user must also supply any required correction curves or schedules. The defrost and drip-down schedule names included here indicate the frequency and duration required. The user must ensure that schedules are provided that meet these needs and that are diversified so that all the cases don’t start their defrost cycles at the same time. Please see the example cases for supermarkets to see how these case objects are included with the rest of a supermarket refrigeration system.
