Hi there, I am making a honeybee energy model for a residential building not in the US. I am creating my own custom loads and schedules to account for my observed cultural differences from the US.
What is a good, validated/approved source where I can get tables of loads per area/person I can input into honeybee?
edit: A recommended software would work as well.
I have been looking at ASHRAE Fundamentals 2017 Handbook but they offer such tables only for non residential building.
Thank you in advance!
In honeybee, you can enter number of people / area in the Honeybee_Set Energyplus Zone loads component.
I hope what you’re referring to is the anthropogenic heat from human bodies. Following are some numbers that come from this paper.
75W for a sleeping man of 70kg
100W for a person at rest
200W for someone walking
300W for someone performing a strenuous activity.
I found this thread at unmet hours where there are many sources as well.
Can you also share what you found on that forum for future reference of others?
Sure. I got a couple good sources of data to use for non-residential buildings. However I couldnt find good data for residential purposes. Would this be because of all different lifestyles people have and more difficult to predict?

This was the ebst source for me:
