Energy performance of buildings - Energy needs for heating and cooling, internal temperatures and sensible and latent heat loads - Part 2: Explanation and justification of ISO 52016-1 and ISO 52017-1 (ISO/TR 52016-2:2017)
This document contains information to support the correct understanding and use of ISO 52016-1 and ISO 52017-1.
These documents give calculation methods for the assessment of:
— the (sensible and latent) energy load and need for heating and cooling, based on hourly calculations;
— the (sensible and latent) energy need for heating and cooling, based on monthly calculations (ISO 52016-1);
— the internal temperature, based on hourly calculations; and
— the design (sensible and latent) heating and cooling load, based on hourly calculations.
This document does not contain any normative provisions.
NOTE A description of the rationale behind the reorganization of the cluster of strongly related and partly overlapping ISO and CEN standards is given in Annex H.
