Title: Domestic active occupancy model - simulation example
Authors: Richardson, Ian
Thomson, Murray
Keywords: Domestic occupancy model
Excel VBA
Issue Date: 2008
Abstract: This Excel Workbook provides an example of a domestic house active-occupancy simulation. The model generates stochastic data sets representing the number of active occupants in a house, over a 24-hour period, at a ten-minute resolution. An active occupant is defined as a person who is in a house, but is not asleep. The model is run by inputting the number of residents who live in a house and whether data for a weekend or weekday is required. The simulation uses data derived from the UK 2000 Time Use Survey, available from the UK Data Archive. The Workbook contains all the necessary data to run the simulation, together with the Visual Basic source code. The operation of the model is discussed in the journal paper: Ian Richardson, Murray Thomson, David Infield, A high-resolution domestic building occupancy model for energy demand simulations, Energy and Buildings, Volume 40, Issue 8, 2008, Pages 1560-1566, ISSN 0378-7788, DOI: 10.1016/j.enbuild.2008.02.006.
