A simplified thermal network model (ELAN) is developed for the assessment of thermal comfort and energy consumption for heating and cooling of a building. Each zone is modelled by a second order network with two temperature nodes which, for a multizone building, are linked by internal transmission and ventilation. The model can be solved on an hourly basis. ELAN has the flexibility of large models concerning geometry, number of zones, occupancy pattern, ventilation, plant operation and weather data.
