Indoor Thermal Environment Simulation by Using MATLAB and Simulink
To compare the indoor thermal environment under different building envelope constructions, a Matlab-based tool was presented for building envelope performance simulation. An application study of two cases illustrates energy efficient buildings can provide more suitable indoor environment than non-energy efficient buildings in cold winter and hot summer. In conclusion, this paper provides a new and fast way for the prediction of indoor thermal environment.
