The present situation (Spring 2020) that the Corona-virus has created, concerning travelling and accommodation, has made the DYNASTEE board to decide that it will support on-line training. It will do so by organising a series of webinars during a period of one month (on a fixed day per week 10-12 h). Each webinar will be composed of two lectures and introduce an exercise using benchmark data that will be made available to the participants for training.
DYNASTEE is proposing on-line training in four webinars for the application of Dynamic Calculation Methods for Building Energy Performance Assessment in September 2020. The proposed program for the webinars can be found Program_OnLineTraining20s.
Note that these webinars cannot be compared with the traditional and physical Summer School, where a close interaction between lecturers and participants is taking place. The webinars should be considered as a helping hand to get started with Dynamic Calculation Methods for Building Energy Performance Assessment.
To get an impression of what these webinars are about, a recent extensive paper presenting the data analysis process applied to high quality data from an outdoor experiment can be downloaded for free. DynamicAnalysisApplied2EPB
Two extensive documents dealing with data analysis, have been made available from the IEA-EBC Annex 58 project (2011 – 2016):
- The document Guidelines_Analysis_BuildingPhysics_A58.pdf focuses on criteria that must be considered to avoid mistakes in pre-processing data and constructing candidate models.
- The document Guidelines_Analysis_StatisticalModelling_A58.pdf presents criteria for selecting the optimal method and model to analyse the available data.
