The comfort zone and the oscillation of the driving temperature

By D. Morillón, D. A. Sámano, F. E. Ávila and J. L. Fernández Zayas


A Fourier-analysis based method is proposed for calculating the heating and cooling loads of a single room: such a method includes the effects of thermal inertia and climate. Two situations are studied: firstly when the driving outdoor-temperature fluctuates within the comfort zone; secondly when this temperature fluctuates out of the comfort zone. Some experimental measurements were performed at different locations in order test the validity of the method.
