[EnergyPlus_Support] Re: Internal Gains - High Consumption Equipment - Simulate


that sounds very close to what should be really happening because of the schedule considered, in this case, it should be much less as you mentioned. That makes al lot of sense to me.

This load profile is hourly averaged and after the multiplier is considered the resulting W/m2 is not so huge. You could have 1000000W/m2, but if it only comes on for a split second in an hour, the W/m2 for that hour will be only the tiniest fraction thereof.

These will be much less. Either way using the max rating over the whole hour is probably incorrect. The manufacturer may have more details.
