Building modelling and simulation integration report

Due date:


Executive summary:

The building modelling and simulation integration report describes the predictive analytics part of the workflow. It begins with description of the mapping of candidate actions which consists of translation of actions into simulation parameters as well as running a baseline simulation using a geometry model and an HVAC model. For this, existing tools such as SketchUp and TRNSYS were integrated using scripts. An energy forecasting mechanism was designed based on the baseline simulation and an integrated weather forecasting model and monitoring data. The workflow was integrated using a combination of an MQTT broker and an FTP server. The output files of the energy forecasting are adapted to the assessment methodology in work package 4. A method for automatic improvement of the building models was proposed and implemented using GenOpt.
