Posted by Michael J. Witte, Last modified by Michael J. Witte on 12 April 2018 02:45 PM
The ASHRAE Handbook of Fundamentals specifies design conditions for 6400+ locations. These zip files have "macro defined" sets for each in EnergyPlus V8.0 (and later) format.|
Monthly design conditions for dry bulb temperature (with mean coincident wet bulb temperature) and wet bulb temperature (with mean coincident dry bulb temperature) for .4% and 2% are included.
Several files are included:
2017_Monthly_DesignDay_Region_1_Africa.zip - design day definitions for WMO Region 1: Africa
2017_Monthly_DesignDay_Region_2_Asia.zip- design day definitions for WMO Region 2: Asia
2017_Monthly_DesignDay_Region_3_South_America.zip - design day definitions for WMO Region 3: South America
2017_Monthly_DesignDay_Region_4_North_And_Central_America.zip - design day definitions for WMO Region 4: North and Central America
2017_Monthly_DesignDay_Region_5_Southwest_Pacific.zip - design day definitions for WMO Region 5: Southwest Pacific
2017_Monthly_DesignDay_Region_6_Europe.zip - design day definitions for WMO Region 6: Europe
2017_Monthly_DesignDay_Region_7_Antarctica.zip - design day definitions for WMO Region 7: Antarctica
Climatic Design Conditions are discussed in the ASHRAE Handbook of Fundamentals, Chapter 14, 2017 edition.
Monthly Design Conditions (represented by the attachments in EnergyPlus SizingPeriod:Designday form) and how they are to be used are also discussed in this chapter.
