heal.abstract
The dissertation is part of the Msc in Energy Building Design program of the Interna-tional Hellenic University of Thessaloniki, under the supervision of the professor Dr. Theodoros Theodosiou. The aim is to investigate the energy behavior and main operating principles of the passive solar sunspace. The first part of the paper consists of a short literature review of previous research on passive sunspace systems. It analyzes the typology of different passive sunspaces sys-tems, the different design variations, their materials and components and the various design options that affect its operation. The advantages of using passive solar systems instead of conventional and energy conservation techniques in residential buildings will be highlighted. The scope of the paper is to study and evaluate the thermal performance of the sunspace and try to determine the key factors that affect it. A series energy simulation will ana-lyze the effect of different parameters such as the materials, shapes, orientations, ther-mal coupling with the building, and operations parameters (movable insulation etc.) to-gether with representative climate parameters across the European continent, in order to propose an effective design optimization. The simulations are representative of the pre-vailing conditions throughout Europe and deal with a wide range of them. The software that will be used is SketchUp for modeling and EnergyPlus for the energy simulations. Every simulation, for all the parameters tested, will be accompanied by a report of the results in the form of chart and diagrams. The comparison of the results produce will eventually lead to the formation of the design guidelines.
