A simplified method is developed to predict the hourly cooling load of the next day. Only four building specifications and the estimated temperature and humidity of the next day are used to predict the cooling load. The sensible heat loads are calculated using the sensible heat coefficient, outdoor air coefficient, and sensible heat constant. Similarly, the latent heat loads are calculated using the outdoor air coefficient, latent heat constant. Four building specifications, that is, sensible heat coefficient, outdoor air coefficient, sensible heat constant and latent heat constant are determined from the building design data for cooling load. In order to validate the prediction model, two benchmarking buildings are selected, and cooling loads are measured in the actual operation conditions. The predicted results show fairly good agreement with the measured data for both buildings.
