Patrick uses TRNSYS in a range of applications including: façade technologies evaluation, whole building performance and microgeneration technology performance prediction. Microgeneration work has predominantly focussed on PV but has expanded to include the microwind and micro-CHP. He led the UK microwind trial analysis on behalf of the Energy Saving Trust. Research areas include:
1) Microgeneration: Photvoltaics, micro-wind, CHP. 2) Energy and comfort implications of refurbishment of commercial multi-storey, multi-occupancy buildings. 3) Energy and Communities - how people impact on the perforamnce of buildings. 4) Building integration of photovoltaics, balance of system lifetime (connectors, inverters). 5) Dynamic energy simulation in buildings and renewable energy systems. Climate change impact on buildings.
Algorithms and computational methods: Multi-core
