The 3rd and final workshop for the Thematic Network IQ-TEST, organised by the
Joint Research Centre, IES – RE, was held in Ispra, Italy 25-26 September 2002,
on the topic of:

Building Energy Performance Assessment and Dynamic Modelling

Specific parameter identification techniques enable the assessment of unknown thermal parameters in building physical systems and in particular those systems that have dynamic or non-linear behaviour (including photovoltaic and ventilated facades).

Several interesting lectures on the application of the software tools LORD and the MatLab toolbox Ident were offered at the workshop. One afternoon was devoted to exercises on portable computers and to exchange experiences, to solve particular problems and to give training on provided data series. An important aspect of the Workshop was the presentation and discussion of the homework exercises that all participants were asked to perform prior to the workshop. Experimental data from a complex roof light system, measured in the well-controlled Paslink test facility, was used for the homework case study.

The successful workshop concluded with the presentation of the new Accompanying Measure project DAME-BC and the announcement of the International Workshop on Dynamic Analysis and Modelling for Energy Performance Assessment of Buildings, to be held at the JRC in Ispra, Italy on 13-14 November 2003.

Participants of this Final Data Analysis Workshop are requested to prepare the exercises described in the Homework Document (zip file, 912 KB)
