Operation Profiles (Energy Evaluation)

Open this dialog box from the Model Review Palette’s pop-up at the top right, from Design > Energy Evaluation > Operation Profile, or with the Options > Element Attributes > Operation Profiles command.
Occupancy type: either Residential or Non-residential
Human heat gain: the amount of heat produced by the human bodies in the building (W/capita)
Service hot-water load: amount of hot water necessary per person, as associated to the selected building function (l/day, per capita)
Humidity Load: the amount of water vapor that gets into the internal air as a result of the building’s operation (l/day)
Internal temperature: Set the hourly allowed internal air temperature range (maximum and/or minimum) during the day
Internal heat gain: Define the factors that result in energy emission (internal heat gain) during the day, per m2 of internal floor area (W/m2)
Recurrence and Date Range define the In use hours (the total number of hours during which the selected Daily Schedule is in effect).
If the Uncovered hours counter on the bottom right corner of the Yearly Operation Scheduler shows any number but 0, it means that further modifications in Recurrence and Date Range are necessary because there are some hours of the reference year without operation schedule assigned to them.
If the Overlapped hours counter on the bottom right corner of the Yearly Operation Scheduler shows any number except 0, it means that further modifications in Recurrence and Date Range are necessary because there are some hours of the reference year with more than one operation schedules assigned to them. Click the yellow warning tag for details on the overlapping profiles.
