English abstract:
The userīs action is a decisive factor in the energy
performance of a building. In this paper is
demonstrated the necessity of using more specific
userīs profiles (UPs) in simulations of buildingīs
energy performance (EP).
The Spanish Technical Code for Buildings (CTE)
offers a unique generic residential UP for all sites in
the country. With the purpose of achieving more
realistic UP, energy data, obtained during seven years
from more than 700 dwellings, are processed by
advanced classification tools (Exclusive SOM). The
UPs obtained are used to make new TRNSYS energy
simulations in the main Spanish cities and the energy
consumption predicted of new UPs is compared to
the CTE UP. The sharp differences corroborate the
importance of more accurate UPs.
