I started following some of the fantastic Chris Mackey’s videos about Energy modelling with Honeybee (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8ncENwXpek&list=PLruLh1AdY-SgW4uDtNSMLeiUmA8YXEHT_&index=1) and as a way to start familiarising with the process, I followed the videos step by step rebuilding the gh definitions.
Of course, I encountered a series of problems regarding the fact that the videos are 6 years old, the methods and components have been updated, but I decided to give it a try.
here the file which cover from 0 to the video n°7 video.
part4.gh (643.4 KB)
I noticed some differences (which I will list below) so I wonder if somebody can check the file and tell me if it is overall making sense and all the components have been used in the right way.
first of all look at the model in the video and then the result I get from my reconstructed definition.
at a basic level, they are qualitatively similar but substantial different in certain rooms, attica and the small room in the center of the building, and in general the kwh/mq have very different bounding values, from 5 to 38 in my model and from 4 to 18 in the other.
one more difference is in is the Heating load at hour 3, again the values differences is now less relevant, however a difference in the heating of the attica is quite evident.
Did the differences are due to the update of the plugin and models used or is my model not set in the right way?
thanks in advance for any advice
