An educational building located in the Caribbean area of Colombia that uses a VAV system has been modeled and simulated in order to quantify the energy consumption. The energy values attained has been compared with the real energy consumption obtained from the data system. The results show that the error introduced are sensitive to the building mass at the beginning of the transient process, never the less, as the transient continues, the software shows good agreement with the experimental data. The maximum error at the beginning is 25% and decreases to 10%.
