Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Thermal mass

Actually sir i want to estimate the energy saving by using thermal mass, So I shut off my system 2 to 3 hour before it's schedule. If there is thermal mass effect in energyplus, then my zone temperature is maintain around set point, so cooling energy not required in last 2 or 3 hour and save the energy. this is what i am thinking but its not happening in modeling. So plz tell mo how can i do it ?

You can run your model using IdeaLoad system controlled by a constant (or variable) thermostat and after compare District Heating and Cooling in both cases
According my experience differences are quite small.

I want to find out the effect of Thermal mass, so i model  two type of different wall having almost same U-value but different heat capacity
( density X specific heat ) and simulate. But the profile of zone temperature for 24 hour are same. So how can i model the thermal mass effect ?
