Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] energy gained from external sources
It is very difficult to separate envelope loads, because a heat balance is
performed at each surface which includes incident solar and long-wave
radiation. There is no report variable with such a value. Surfaces interact
with the zone air heat balance by convection. The ultimate load from the
surfaces is (SurfaceInsideTemperature - ZoneAir Temperature) * SurfaceArea *
SurfaceInsideConvectionCoefficient, but this includes the solar gains and
radiant internal gains which are absorbed by the surfaces. The best way to
approximate the contribution from the envelope is to take the total load and
subtract off the gains from windows, internal loads, infiltration, and
ventilation. The remainder will approximate the impact of the envelope.
