IEA ECBES Annex 42 The Simulation of Building-Integrated Fuel Cell and Other Cogeneration Systems (COGEN-SIM) - Final Report

Share this Post:

This is the final report of Annex 42 of the IEA ECBCS (Energy Conservation in Buildings and Community Systems)

The objectives of Annex 42 were to develop simulation models that advance the design, operation and analysis of residential cogeneration systems, and to apply these models to assess the technical, environmental and economic performance of the technologies. This was accomplished by developing and incorporating models of cogeneration devices and associated plant components within existing whole-building simulation programs. Emphasis was placed on fuel cell cogeneration systems, and the Annex considered technologies suitable for use in new and existing single and low-rise, multi-family residential buildings. The models were developed at a time resolution that is appropriate for whole-building simulation.
