I read the non-linear models with brms and it seems that you can write out formulas for calculating the response variable. I am trying to do this with calculating energy consumption. A simple equation would be:
use = baseload + (((floorarea*(To-Ti))/Rvalue)/SEER/4000)
use: Energy Consumption
To: Outdoor Temperature
Ti: Indoor Temperature
I only have outdoor temperature and energy consumption in the dataset.
I was hoping to incorporate a distribution of reasonable values for the other variables with the goal of estimating the impact of outdoor temperature on energy use.
However, I am at a loss on how to write the model to achieve this or if it is possible…
