Space Functions

Residential space functions

Schedules characterizing the hourly profiles for thermostat setpoints, HVAC operation, and internal loads listed below are described in Schedules.

Residential internal loads are sourced from the original DEER models, but translated from DOE2 to CSE format. Internal load assumptions are listed in the model specification reports.

Internal Loads

Design internal loads include:

  • Lighting power (Watts)
  • Equipment power (receptacles, cooking, refrigeration, dish washing, clothes washing and drying) (Watts)
  • Occupancy (people per zone)

Domestic Hot Water

Domestic hot water (DHW) assumptions include:

  • DHW draw profiles for sinks, baths, showers, dish washing, and clothes washing
