Abstract

This paper presents the first steps towards a District
Energy Simulation Test (DESTEST), which is part of IBPSA Project 1. The goal is to develop a test sequel for district energy simulations, inspired by principles of the BESTEST. It aims at providing a means to validate District Energy System models. The description of the DESTEST cases and the simulation results of extensively verified models will be available as a reference for verification. By presenting the research plan, goal and first results, the district energy simulation community is informed about the project’s intentions, offering a chance for feedback and collaboration.
