PREDICTION OF HOURLY HEATING ENERGY USE FOR HVAC USING FEEDFORWARD NEURAL NETWORKS




Abstract:
In this paper, feedforward neural network, one of the most widely used artificial intelligence methods, was proposed for the prediction of hourly heating energy use of one university campus. Two different approaches were presented: network that provides one output (heating energy use for selected hour) and network with 24 outputs (daily profile of heating energy use). The proposed models were trained and tested using real measured hourly energy use and meteorological data. It has been shown that both models can be used for the prediction with satisfying accuracy. This kind of prediction can be used for calculating accurate energy bills, which is very useful considering that the significant part of the campus is being leased. Estimating energy use for different weather conditions can help in energy planning.
