Equivalent Full Load Hours for Interior Lighting and Schedule

1 post / 0 new


I am modeling an Office Building and I received the following comment from the Reviewer: 

"The Schedules tab indicates that the interior lighting schedule is determined based on the ASHRAE Office schedule for interior lighting; however, the equivalent full load hours for interior lighting in the Baseline model (determined by dividing the total annual lighting consumption by the total input lighting power) are 3,165 hours/year, which are significantly higher than the lighting schedule indicated  of  2,288 hours/year.

I have reviced the data introduced in the sorfware - HAP v5.11 - and verified that it is ok.

Would you please help me to understand this issue to respond to the Reviewer.

Thank you
