Multi-zone modeling of Thermal Comfort and Energy Consumption of a hospital ward: a summer case study
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Hospital is of interest when consider its especial function. Because of the obviously different between the normal residential buildings, the requirement of hospitals’ indoor climate strictly differs from other buildings.
The author starts this report by briefly stating the building construction currently. Surrounded the topic of thermal comfort and energy consumption, many suggestion and options came out in this report to develop a better condition.
Firstly, the introduction of the hospital buildings requires the background of the hospital object and the purpose to this report will be stated.
Secondly, the simulation tool and how to use this tool simulate our real case are introduced.
Then, the summer case is investigated by this tool after the model is proved to be validated.
Finally, the improvement of establishing a better indoor environment is raised and the results of improvement and conclusion can be found. The final result will show the optimal solution that discovered by this study after compared different alternatives carefully.
