AbstractA wide range of events in buildings occur at sub-hourly frequencies. Notable examples include daylight-sensing control and manual adjustment of blinds and lights in response to sub-hourly illuminance variations. Such short-term changes can produce notable shifts in instantaneous solar and equipment loads, in turn affecting electrical energy demand. Although sub-hourly time discretization is currently available in several whole building energy simulation programs, it remains challenging to model this level of complexity as traditional hourly utilization profiles describing occupancy, lighting and equipment loads remain the basic input data model. This paper provides a background review of building energy simulation models of stochastic occupancy prediction, occupancy-sensing control and stochastic manual control, and outlines the current addition of a few investigated models to ESP-r.
