Abstract

The reliable assessment of building energy performance requires significant computational times. The chapter handles this issue by proposing an original methodology that employs artificial neural networks (ANNs) to predict the energy behavior of all buildings of an established category. The ANNs are generated in MATLAB by using EnergyPlus simulations for testing and training purposes. The inputs ...
