The Effect of Anthropogenic Heat on Local Heat Island Intensity and the Performance of Air Conditioning Systems
Anthropogenic heat released from air conditioning systems is one of the most important factors contributing to the heat island in summer. A model to predicted heat island intensity is built. Using this model, a typical office building cluster is simulated, and the effect of heat released by air condition on outdoor thermal environment and heat island intensity is discussed. Furthermore, the reaction of heat island intensity rising on the performance of air conditioning systems is also investigated.
