  1. 1. The ORC method

    Author : Jan Akander; KTH; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The ORC Method (Optimised RC-networks) provides a means ofmodelling one- or multidimensional heat transfer in buildingcomponents, in this context within building simulationenvironments. The methodology is shown, primarily applied toheat transfer in multilayer building components. READ MORE

    Author : Hossein Bakhtiari; Mathias Cehlin; Jan Akander; Abolfazl Hayati; Patrik Rohdin; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; historic buildings; office buildings; Nordic climate; thermal comfort; field on-site measurements; standardized questionnaire; building management system BMS ; night ventilation NV ; building energy simulation BES ; IDA-ICE; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development;

    Abstract : Envelopes with low thermal performance are common characteristics in European historic buildings resulting in insufficient thermal comfort and higher energy use compared to modern buildings. There are different types of applications for the European historic buildings such as historic churches, historic museums, historic theatres, etc. READ MORE

  4. 4. A System Perspective on Energy End-Use Measures in a District Heated Region : Renovation of Buildings and Hydronic Pavement Systems

    Author : Stefan Blomqvist; Louise Ödlund; Patrik Rohdin; Jan Akander; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : A district heating and cooling (DHC) system can be a viable piece of the puzzle in the efforts of reducing the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Especially if the DHC system include combined heat and power (CHP) plants which enable electricity production from renewable resources. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the Effect of Occupant Behavior and Internal Heat Gains on the Building’s Energy Demand : A case study of an office building and a retirement home

    Author : Jakob Carlander; Bahram Moshfegh; Jan Akander; Shahnaz Amiri; Sture Holmberg; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; building energy simulation; energy efficiency indicators; occupant behaviour; energy performance; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development;

    Abstract : About 12% of the greenhouse gas emissions and 40% of the total energy use in the EU derive from the buildings. User behavior, construction, and HVAC systems has a significant impact on a building’s energy use. If a building is to be energy-efficient it is important to understand how all these parameters are connected. READ MORE
