Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Re: Comfort calculation (PMV)
I am not familiar with WinComf, so I do not know how the inputs relate to each
other. For EnergyPlus if the activity level remains the same and work
efficiency is increased, then thermal comfort should decrease, because more of
the total energy (activity level) becomes effective work rather than heat
inside the person.
