A simulation modeling occupant behavior should be performed, as occupant behavior is a factor that has a considerable influence on building energy. However, there is a systematic process that should be explained as there are countless measurement and pre-processing methodologies. The modelling should be implemented close to the actual energy usage through a behavioral application simulation. To do this, the data was preprocessed using the behavioral and power requirements of the cooling period measured for two weeks, and a simulation was developed using the data. The results of the data collection and subsequent modelling are presented.
