Subject: [Bldg-sim] Simulation Calibration


I have used equest a number of times to show clients the relative effects of
changing from standard efficiency to higher efficiency equipment or say from
T8 to T5 lighting systems. Generally, pretty basic models. 


I now have a client a (a municipality) that is interested in "calibrating"
the models to get more precise information.  


I've heard the term "calibration" as it relates to models, and I think I
understand the concept, but how is this actually done?  Is it just a matter
of improving the details of the model, or is there testing of walls and
other systems to determine actual installed values?


Are there any good articles out there on this topic?


All help appreciated.
