Abstract

Field measurements were conducted on temperature distributions for a long-distance transport bus station under natural ventilation during transition season in city Nanjing at the southern China. Four climate regions are divided for the southern china based on the outdoor meteorological data and one typical city is selected out for each climate region. EnergyPlus software is adopted to simulate the station’s temperatures under natural ventilation for each city. Results are compared some good with that of the measured. The available times of natural ventilation are respectively determined based on an improved thermal adaptation model. The findings are that for the climate region II and III, the building achieves the medium natural ventilation cooling potential; for the region IV, the building achieve the lowest potential; whereas for the region I, it has the best potential. This study contributes to extend the using of natural ventilation for public buildings in southern China so as to realize the HVAC energy saving.
