Title: Domestic lighting demand model - simulation example
Authors: Richardson, Ian
Thomson, Murray
Keywords: Domestic lighting
Energy demand modelling
Excel VBA
Issue Date: 16-Dec-2008
Abstract: This Excel Workbook provides a high-resolution simulation of domestic lighting demand. The model generates stochastic data sets representing the lighting demand for a single dwelling over a 24-hour period at a one minute time resolution. The model uses both an active occupancy model (http://hdl.handle.net/2134/3112), together with measured irradiance data, as dynamic inputs. The user may configure the month of the year, the total number of residents that live at the dwelling and whether a week day or a weekend day simulation is required. The Workbook contains all the necessary data to run the simulation and includes the Visual Basic for Applications source code. The model is discussed in the journal paper: Ian Richardson, Murray Thomson, David Infield, Alice Delahunty, Domestic lighting: A high-resolution energy demand model, Energy and Buildings, Volume 41, Issue 7, July 2009, Pages 781-789, ISSN 0378-7788, DOI: 10.1016/j.enbuild.2009.02.010.
