This package contains variable air volume flow models for office buildings.
The models Buildings.ThermalZones.EnergyPlus_9_6_0.Examples.SmallOffice.ASHRAE2006Winter and Buildings.ThermalZones.EnergyPlus_9_6_0.Examples.SmallOffice.Guideline36Winter appear to be quite similar to Buildings.Examples.VAVReheat.ASHRAE2006 and Buildings.Examples.VAVReheat.Guideline36, respectively, because they all have the same HVAC system, control sequences, and all have five thermal zones. However, the models in Buildings.ThermalZones.EnergyPlus_9_6_0.Examples.SmallOffice are from the DOE Commercial Reference Building, Small Office, new construction, ASHRAE 90.1-2004, Version 1.3_5.0, whereas the models in Buildings.Examples.VAVReheat are from the DOE Commercial Building Benchmark, Medium Office, new construction, ASHRAE 90.1-2004, version 1.2_4.0. Therefore, the dimensions of the thermal zones in Buildings.ThermalZones.EnergyPlus_9_6_0.Examples.SmallOffice are considerably smaller than in Buildings.Examples.VAVReheat. As the sizing is scaled with the volumes of the thermal zones, the model structure is the same, but the design capacities are different, as is the energy consumption.
