Full Description

To foster development of better models of building energy systems, ASHRAE has sponsored several recent projects to identify, catalog and standardize models of building components and subsystems. For example, 629-RP has produced a Secondary Systems Toolkit, and 665-RP will soon produce a Primary Systems Toolkit. These Toolkits are collections of HVAC component and subsystem models expressed as computer subroutines for selected target environments.

The Neural Model Format (NMF) has been proposed as a more appropriate means of expressing mathematical models such as represented in the ASHRAE Toolkits. With the Toolkit models re-expressed in NMF, appropriate translators can be used to automatically produce modules of common provenance for a diverse group of building simulators.
