Whole Supermarket System Modelling

Abstract [en]

The supermarket sector has more or less used the trial and error approach to implement and evaluate new ideas and concepts for decreasing energy usage and minimizing refrigerant charge. To estimate the energy requirement in a supermarket, it is necessary to evaluate the interrelatedness between the different subsystems and their energy demands. The main subsystems included in computer simulation models for energy use in supermarkets are the building envelope, outdoor climate, HVAC system, refrigeration system and retail display cabinets. The chapter also analyzes four different whole-building simulation models for supermarkets: EnergyPlus developed by the US Department of Energy; CyberMart developed by the Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden; RETScreen developed by Natural Resources Canada; and SuperSim developed by Brunel University in the UK. The implementation of new energy-saving technologies in supermarkets requires an extensive analysis of energy performance of refrigeration systems, HVAC systems, lighting, appliances, and of total energy consumption.
