Experience Testing EnergyPlus with the IEA HVAC BESTEST E100-E200 Series

An eight-page building simulation paper. The EnergyPlus building energy simulation software has been tested using the IEA HVAC BESTEST E100-E200 series of tests. The Volume 1 final report for the International Energy Agency (IEA) Building Energy Simulation Test and Diagnostic Method for Heating, Ventilating, and Air-Conditioning Equipment Models (HVAC BESTEST), was recently published in January 2002. HVAC BESTEST is a series of steady-state tests for a single-zone DX cooling system. Cases range from dry to wet coil, low to high part load, and low to high temperatures. This published test suite includes three sets of analytical solutions and results from several other simulation programs for comparison.
