MOLINA, Juan O.; LEFEBVRE, Gilles; HORN, Manfred  and  GOMEZ, Mónica M.. Design of an experimental bioclimatic module obtained from the analysis of thermal simulations for the community of Imata (4519 m a.s.l.), located in Arequipa, Perú. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2020, vol.31, n.2, pp.173-186. ISSN 0718-0764.

Based on dynamic thermal simulations with the EnergyPlus software, an experimental module of a rural dwelling is proposed for the village of Imata, Peru, at 4519 meters above sea level, with severe climatic conditions of very low temperatures. Simulations were carried out for five module configurations, successively adding bioclimatic components, such as improvements in the insulation of the enclosure, skylight and attached greenhouse. For the month with the lowest temperatures, the average temperature in the best configuration module is 11 °C higher than the average temperature in the module corresponding to typical Imata houses. The minimum average night temperature is 18.4 °C higher than the corresponding outside temperature (- 4 °C). To maintain a temperature of 16.3 °C inside the module (adaptive model), on annual average, a daily energy of 12 kWh is required for the typical module, and 1 kWh for the best design.

Keywords : bioclimatic design; thermal simulation; EnergyPlus; frost; adaptive comfort.
