Description

This dataset includes data from the validation of double U-tube borehole and seasonal solar thermal energy storage system TRNSYS models. The simulated transient temperatures at various points of the systems were compared with the measured ones. To quantify the agreement between each simulated and measured temperature of interest, mean bias error (MBE), root mean square error (RMSE) and correlation coefficient (CC) were applied.

Steps to reproduce

1. Set local time and recording time steps of the loggers. 2. Collect temperatures for the duration. 3. Download the recorded data. 4. Obtain weather data from the onsite weather station and Australian Government BOM. Also, verify the data from the weather station by comparing with data from BOM. 5. Aggregated weather data and measurement data from DT605 and DT85. 6. Generate input data files (2 min interval) in TRNSYS Type9. 7. Develop a building model <*.b17> in Rebuild and TRNSYS project files <*.tpf> in Simulation Studio. 8. Generate deck files <*.dck>. 9. Compare the measured data with simulated data for a double U-tube borehole, and quantify the agreement by using MBE, RMSE, CC. 10. Compare the measured data with simulated data for each component, and quantify the agreement by using MBE, RMSE, CC.
