[TRNSYS-users] Weather Stations

Thank-you Tim,


I’ve managed to find some of the files I’ve been looking for. However, one question that sticks in my mind is how do I know if the data is accurate or not without doing my own monitoring over years to validate? Many stations have sporadic data collection, so have to interpolate with nearby stations, etc. It’s hard to predict the future of course, but I’d like to have some reasonable assurance that the designs I create will realistically apply to a typical environmental year. Any ideas as to what I should look out for or the questions I should be asking?

Roger Hill -

There are a number of sources for weather data.  You can check

Energy Plus Weather: http://apps1.eere.energy.gov/buildings/energyplus/weatherdata_about.cfm

White Box Technologies: http://weather.whiteboxtechnologies.com/

Weather Analytics: http://www.weatheranalytics.com/wa/

and I am sure there are many more.

I’m building an extensive hydronic and PV solar model for a campus of a dozen buildings in Australia west of Sydney in the Blue Mountains. Meteonorm has a site (#947430) that is close to our site (Blackheath), but this is a secondary station. I don’t know if this is reliable data or not and I haven’t been able to get anyone at Meteonorm to respond to my emails.


Does anyone know where I can find a reliable weather data set for close to our location that will work with TRNSYS type 15?
