Abstract: Based on the data collected in recent surveys, models have been established to represent the energy characteristics of living and dining rooms and bedrooms in typical residential buildings in Hong Kong, in respect of the layout and construction; the density and pattern of occupation; the power intensities and operating patterns of lighting and appliances; and air-conditioner operation patterns. With the help of computer simulation, the impacts of varying these characteristics on the annual space cooling load have been evaluated, which allowed representative internal load patterns for residential units to be defined. These are essential data for predicting energy use in residential buildings, which, in turn, is an indispensable part of studies on ways to assess and minimise energy use in such buildings. This paper presents the building model and the internal load and air-conditioner operation patterns established in the study.
