We have an office building which is predominantly cooled by natural ventilation. Natural ventilation is being controlled by the operable windows through BMS. We are doing the thermal simulation in IES-VE. We have gone through the previous discussions from LEED USER and have checked the " LEED advance modelling guide". However we have the following queries;
1) In Baseline , the system will be modeled according to Appendix G. ie. the office areas (which are natural ventilated) have mechanical cooling ?
2) How do we model the proposed natural ventilation strategy for LEED and ensure unmet load hours criteria is adhered to ?
Thanking you all in advance.
Looking forward to the replies
