The objectives of Annex 42 were to develop simulation models that advance the design, operation, and analysis of residential cogeneration systems, and to apply these models to assess the technical, environmental, and economic performance of the technologies. This was accomplished by developing and incorporating models of cogeneration devices and associated plant components within existing whole-building simulation programs. Emphasis was placed upon fuel cell cogeneration systems and the Annex considered technologies suitable for use in new and existing single and low-rise-multi-family residential buildings. The models were developed at a time resolution that is appropriate for whole-building simulation. To accomplish these objectives Annex 42 conducted research and development in the framework of the following three Subtasks: Subtask A : Cogeneration system characterization and characterization of occupant-driven electrical and domestic hot water usage patterns. Subtask B : Development, implementation, and validation of cogeneration system models. Subtask C : Technical, environmental, and economic assessment of selected cogeneration applications, recommendations for cogeneration application.Annex 42 was an international joint effort conducted by 26 organizations in 10 countries.
