One system = a set of components

Type

One component is associated to one process


Components are connected to accomplish a specified task

Component mathematical model


Inputs + Parameters  Outputs
Black box approach But you can open it!

Simulating system performance by simulating the performance of


individual components

Building is split into thermal zones

Energy Balance Model


Convective and radiative heat flows in the zones
Geometrically based (for radiation calculations)
One air node per zone (but virtual air node for stratification computation)
Transfer Function used for heat flow through walls
Comfort evaluation (PMV & PPD)
Connection with HVAC system
Humidity Model
Internal and external shading computation
Air flow calculation using TRNFLOW add-on

TRNSYS3D - a plugin for Google SketchUp


Geometry defined in SketchUp, imported into TRNSYS
 Geometrical model for inside and/or outside radiation

New construction types can be defined (before, limited number of types)


Definition of new boundary temperatures
Shading control for windows
Some corrected bugs!

- New plug-in : visualization


of Shading and insulation
matrix
