English abstract:
In order to predict the performance of a building regarding energy demand and indoor conditions, reliable input information is needed. Weather data represents an important component of such input information for performance simulation. Currently, standard weather files are typically used for this purpose. These are based on long-term observations (weather records) from weather stations. requently, this data is generated from weather stations in the proximity of airports. However, such files do not necessarily represent in a detailed manner the microclimatic conditions around the designated location of a building. In this context, the present
paper explores the possibility of generating weather information for urban areas that is more in tune with the conditions around specific building locations. This local adjustment of the weather information and its consideration in weather files could improve the reliability of simulation-based predictions of building performance.
