Simulation and Analysis of Cooling Load about Building Construction
Combined with an independent residential construction, using cooling load coefficient method based on the DEST software, the hourly cooling load calculation program is established, the hourly cooling load is calculated, and the distribution character of cooling load is analyzed. It can be concluded that the maximum cooling load appears in the afternoon between 14:00 to 16:00. In refrigeration seasons, the number of days whose maximum daily cooling load ranged from 40 to 50 W/m2 in summer is the most; however, the number of the ones whose peak value beyond 80 W/m2 is only 9 days. So the cooling load distribution indicates that the ratio of load operating is about more than 75 percent.
