dc.description.abstractThis study addresses 5 uncertainties that exist in the operation of HVAC systems, which will presumably affect the actual energy consumption of the HVAC system in comparison to the consumption under idealized bahavior. We consequently add these parameters and their uncertainty range into the source code, eventually resulting in an EnergyPlus program in which the HVAC operation uncertainty is embedded as so-called model form uncertainty. The upgraded EnergyPlus is tested for each parameter uncertainty separately, and to show the impact of each uncertainty albeit for hypothetical uncertainty ranges of the parameters.
