Construct Energy Balance

Component Index > Honeybee > 10 | Energy | Energy > Construct Energy Balance

This component accepst the outputs of the "Read EP Result" and the "Read EP Surface Result" components and outputs a data tree with all of the building-wide energy balance terms. This can then be plugged into the "Ladybug_3D Chart" or "Ladybug_Monthly Bar Chart" to give a visualization of the energy balance of the whole model.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
_HBZones_HBZonesThe HBZones out of any of the HB components that generate or alter zones. Note that these should ideally be the zones that are fed into the Run Energy Simulation component. Zones read back into Grasshopper from the Import idf component will not align correctly with the EP Result data.Goo
cooling_cooling_The cooling load from the "Honeybee_Read EP Result" component.Goo
heating_heating_The heating load from the "Honeybee_Read EP Result" component.Goo
electricLight_electricLight_The electric lighting load from the "Honeybee_Read EP Result" component.Goo
electricEquip_electricEquip_The electric equipment load from the "Honeybee_Read EP Result" component.Goo
fanElectric_fanElectric_The electric fan load from the "Honeybee_Read EP Result" component.Goo
peopleGains_peopleGains_The people gains from the "Honeybee_Read EP Result" component.Goo
totalSolarGain_totalSolarGain_The total solar gain from the "Honeybee_Read EP Result" component.Goo
infiltrationEnergy_infiltrationEnergy_The infiltration heat loss (negative) or heat gain (positive) from the "Honeybee_Read EP Result" component.Goo
mechVentilationEnergy_mechVentilationEnergy_The outdoor air heat loss (negative) or heat gain (positive) from the "Honeybee_Read EP Result" component.Goo
natVentEnergy_natVentEnergy_The natural ventilation heat loss (negative) or heat gain (positive) from the "Honeybee_Read EP Result" component.Goo

Outputs

----------------------------------------...Goo
flrNormEnergyBalflrNormEnergyBalA data tree with the important building-wide energy balance terms normalized by floor area. This can then be plugged into the "Ladybug_3D Chart" or "Ladybug_Monthly Bar Chart" to give a visualization of the energy balance of the whole model.Goo
flrNormBalWStorageflrNormBalWStorageA data tree with the important building-wide energy balance terms normalized by floor area plus an additional term to represent the energy being stored in the building's mass. If you have input all of the terms of your energy balance to this component, you storage term should be very small in relation to the other energy balance terms. Thus, this storage term can be a good way to check whether all of your energy balance terms are accounted for. This output can then be plugged into the "Ladybug_3D Chart" or "Ladybug_Monthly Bar Chart" to give a visualization of the energy balance of the whole model.Goo
