I am running an energy simulation for a single zone which is non-adiabatic and exposed to the ground. I have encountered an energy balance with significant storage. There is no heating and cooling considered in the model. I couldn’t figure out the reason for the storage. Any leads are appreciated. I have already looked and tried the suggestions from the previous posts
I am analysing a rectangular thermal zone that has 2 walls which are facades with windows on the corner. If I leave it as it is with eeeeverything set as default, so it cannot be me messing up with something I shouldn’t, I get quite a big portion of storage energy in the energy balance.
After a lot of tests I managed to find out the problem being having windows in both surfaces. I believe the problem is the sun getting through one and leaving through th…
I’m studying the energy balance of my model and I noticed that the storage term is very high : the annual storage load represents half the heating load. Knowing that this term should be very small, I think this value make my energy balance faulty.
My understanding of this term is that it’s computing from all the other variables of the energy balance. I’m trying to fix this problem but I don’t know these variables so I can’t figure out where the error came from.
I’m trying to do a optimization of energy consumption of a building. I’m simulating the energy used for cooling and electric light, basically. When I use the energy balance component, the storage values are very high. Is there something wrong?
Additionally, I am attaching the gh file which is enclosed in the drive location below:
