This document reports on the layout configuration and components characteristics of solar driven heating and cooling systems. These HVAC systems are installed in the residential buildings described in the Deliverable B1.

The energy plant reported for the first example has a modular structure in a way that different configurations can be modelled and system performance can be compared. Four generation devices, three distribution systems and different solar field areas of solar thermal and PV systems can be combined keeping the control strategies unchanged.

The use of solar technologies for covering heating and cooling loads can assume different configurations. In deliverable B3, a number of this kind of heating & cooling systems are described. These systems are installed in residential buildings described in the deliverable B1: single and multi-family houses located in different climates throughout Europe. Systems sizing and control strategies are reported in B4.

The main objective of SubTask B is to analyse and select optimized control strategies to manage the interaction between solar and cooling machine and to investigate demand/response strategies to optimise the interaction with smart grids. The latter objective is developed in the Deliverable B2, while the first is presented in the Deliverable B5. Reference buildings, energy plant layouts and control strategies used for assessing the performance of innovative systems are described in B1, B3 and B4 respectively.

The aim of this report is therefore to provide information on the boundary conditions and construction typologies that have been used to simulate heating and cooling demands of residential buildings.
