Abstract

This paper provides a preliminary assessment on the accuracy of the Brazilian regulation simplified model for commercial buildings. The first step was to compare its results with BESTEST. The study presents a straightforward approach to apply the BESTEST in other climates than the original one (Denver, Colorado, USA). The second step consisted on applying the simplified model for common buildings, and compare the results with those obtained using a state of the art building energy simulation (BES) program. Significant errors were found when comparing the simplified model with BESTEST and the common buildings analyzed.
