However, on seeking to determine the actual behavior of such equipment when it is subjected to disturbances, whether thermal load and/or energy source, its transient behavior needs to be verified (Monne, Alonso, Palacin, & Serra, 2011; Edem et al., 2012), because, this is what leads to a real understanding of how they operate.
