in Subtask A of IEA Task 1, a common understanding and basis for the modeling and simulation of solar heating and cooling systems was established. This was done by comparing the performance predictions of models developed in participating countries for a set of well-defined, representative, hypothetical systems. The results of that work are documented in Ref. 1. Subtask E was initiated as a natural continuation of the work of Subtask A to further evaluate the simulation codes by performing comparisons to measured data for real installed systems.
