There is illogical situation with window-based natural ventilation in my simulation that when applying natural ventilation passive strategy, occupants feel too cold in the summer night (27% cold hours), while they only feel so by 10% if fixed windows are assigned (no NV). The strange here is that less feel too cold in the winter months. The ranges that I have used are as following:
MinIndoorTemforNatVent = 21 (lower bounce of comfort range)
MaxIndoorTemforNatVent = 28
MaxoutdoorTemforNatVent = 28
_location: Cyprus (hot humid)
I want to get as less cold hours as possible. For the hot hours, I will use external shading device in the summer months.
I have read nearly all previous posts and discussions but I didn’t get the answer for this situation and only naturally-conditioned space.
Another question which is related to microclimate map:
As I use only passive means, the results of TCP (adaptComfMtx) is not the same as Thermal Autonomy (TA), but occTCP=TA, is it because TA does only count for occupied hours and TCP (adaptComfMtx) calculates all the time including both occupied and not occupied hours? If so, do I have to consider both results or one of them is enough?
