The climatic data which was surveyed from 1981 to 1993 in Beijing was analysed to generate a representative year, a Test Reference Year (TRY). This TRY consists of just one year of hourly data that could yield the same simulation results as the long-term data, thereby minimizing the computation need to assess long-term system performance. It can be used as input data for the simulation of the performance of solar energy and indoor climate systems. The application of this TRY in the simulation of a solar domestic hot water system is also presented.
