Iea annex 60 activity 2.3: Model use during operation, approach and case studies
The IEA EBC Annex 60 is developing and demonstrating new generation computational tools for building and community energy systems based on the non-proprietary Modelica modelling language and Functional Mock-up Interface standards. The anticipated outcomes are open-source, freely available, documented, validated and verified computational tools that allow buildings, building systems and community energy grids to be designed and operated as integrated, robust, performance based systems with low energy use and low peak power demand. Activity 2.3 focuses on the use of models during building operations to augment monitoring, implement control algorithms and fault detection, and diagnostics methods. This paper presents an overview of the work carried out within Activity 2.3 including a description of three case studies.
