  • Automated gbXML-Based Building Model Creation for Thermal Building Simulation

    In the area of as-is BIM creation from point cloud, researchers start digging the potential of using point cloud as 3D scenes of the construction job site to monitor construction progresses and safety. However, limited contribution was made in the AEC/FM domain to assist decision making process on building retrofit and renovation. This paper presents a method of automatic gbXML-based building model generation from thermal point cloud. Through the proposed geometry extraction and thermal resistance value estimation techniques, the size and thermal information of the building envelope components are automatically obtained in order to quickly generate building models ready for energy performance simulation. The registered point cloud of a residential house was used as a case study to validate the proposed method.

  • Building simulation/emulation environments for home automation systems

    The growing interest for developing intelligent and user-friendly systems that take care of various tasks in home management has forested, in the last years, the study of architectures and behavioral strategies for home automation systems. From a theoretical point of view, home automation systems present great complexity, due to their hybrid, distributed and heterogeneous structure, which makes the problem of allocating limited resources like electricity, gas and water very difficult. In this paper, we propose a general methodology for modeling, in a Multi Agent System fashion, home automation systems and for constructing an efficient simulation/emulation environment. Our approach employ an UML point of view for constructing models of individual appliances and domotic devices, called agents, whose structure replicates the coupling between real appliances and real actuated/monitored plugs. Generic models consist of a switched dynamics governed by a Petri net, which provides the interface between agents and with the environment. Glowing together, in a suitable way, the Petri net components of agents sharing a common resource, it is possible to define the structure of an overall system that describes concurrent use of that resource. In order to cope with constrains and limitation of resources, the overall system can be endowed with a suitable controller, giving rise to what we call an Home Automation System. Thank to their structures, abstract models and real appliances can be combined into emulation environment where the performances of controllers and related control strategies can be easily investigated. Our approach provide therefore a general methodology for supporting design and validation of control strategies for home automation systems.

  • EPPY based Building Co-Simulation for Model Predictive Control of HVAC Optimization

    Model Predictive Control (MPC) has received significant attention recently with its promises of enhancing energy efficiency in buildings and the most common mean of testing MPC is to integrate the controller into a high fidelity building simulation software such as EnergyPlus. Therefore, various toolboxes have been introduced to facilitate the co-simulation between EnergyPlus and MATLAB such that minimal understanding of Energy Plus is required. However, these toolboxes can frequently be outdated and incompatible with newer releases of EnergyPlus or MATLAB, leading to unnecessary technical problems for its users. Hence, we propose a methodology for simulating controller design in EnergyPlus that can be lasting through the use of Python as a medium. Despite differences in syntax, Python and MATLAB share much similarities and shall pose little difficulty to engineers familiar with MATLAB. To verify the proposed methodology, a simulation is carried out an MPC controller designed to minimize energy consumption while guaranteeing comfort bound under an occupancy schedule. Compared to a fixed-scheduled controller, the MPC controller shows a better performance with respect to the energy consumption of the HVAC system designed in EnergyPlus.

  • A case study of prioritizing thermal zones to retrofit effectively existing building

    Architectural constraints represent a challenging aspect in energy retrofitting of existing buildings. Usual interventions are often not possible to preserve historical values of the building stock. The aim of this study is to analyse what energy efficiency measures could be applied to a listed building, specifically, in some of its parts. The case study is the Pharmaceutical Chemistry building of the Sapienza University campus in Rome. This approach shows how interventions no feasible for the overall building would be beneficial if applied at lower scale such as a single thermal zone or a single area. A building simulation model was built as a reference scenario. Then, for each identified thermal zone the upgrade due to the hypothesized energy efficiency measure was evaluated.

  • Building Energy Simulation for Nearly Zero Energy Retrofit Design: The Model Calibration

    Building energy simulation is an effective tool to design retrofit and management interventions, provided that the simulation model is carefully calibrated. As a first step towards the development of guidelines for using dynamic simulation for the design of retrofit interventions aiming at the nZEB target, in the present study a calibration procedure, consisting in tuning the building walls model first, is demonstrated. Therefore, starting from a real building case study, the walls model is created in parallel within different building simulation environments, namely EnergyPlus, IDA ICE and OpenBPS. The impact of the simulation tool and of the calibration procedure on the model predictions is thus investigated and discussed.

  • Demand response capability assessment for buildings based on simulation and model simplification

    Issues such as energy shortage and global warming become prominent. Meanwhile, the rapid growth of the load makes the grid pay more attention to demand side. Demand response (DR) is an effective tool to change the shape of the load. Usually buildings consume much energy, and also have great DR capability. It is crucial to assess the DR capability of buildings, which is a tough task because the building model is very complex to make strategy efficiently. This paper proposes a method to deal with this problem. A building simulation software named DeST is used to generate cooling load with different condition. Then the data is used to simplify the accurate model into a 4th-order model, which is used in a cost minimizing problem. DR capability of a typical commercial building in Beijing is assessed as a case study under time of use (TOU) pricing.

  • Computer-supported methodologies to estimate the eave effect on building energy consumption

    Buildings (both commercial and residential) are known to have the greatest percentage of overall energy consumption than any other end-user sectors, such as transportation and industry factories. An obvious question for energy consumption analysis is how to reduce building energy consumption. This paper investigates whether buildings with eaves consume significantly less energy compared to those without eaves. Results show that the eaves effect can reduce energy consumption without exception. Specifically, the average energy consumption reduction with eave exceeds 10% for high or low latitude and hospital and hotel. The methodologies applied integrate several computer- supported cooperative tools, including a building-simulation tool called EnergyPlus and a simulation meta model.

  • Control optimization for increasing energy performance of existing buildings

    This paper presents the objective of the Energy IN TIME (EiT) project of developing more advanced control method for existing non-residential buildings. This approach will be based on advanced building simulation models to reduce the energy consumption and energy bill. The project methodology will cover the most accurate and up to date international standards for energy efficiency. A simulation reference models will be developed with both forecasted and real time data type: external (climate, energy tariffs), internal data (status, equipment, occupancy) and user behavior data. A continuous commissioning strategy will be develop to better cope with the deviations between operational plans and real operation of the building, together with a fault detection and diagnostic system, designed for overall system robustness and evaluating faulty operation scenarios. The project goes beyond existing building control techniques by implementing a prediction system for indoor comfort conditions and used behavior performance to further improve energy efficiency and equipment lifetime. This approach will allow the reduction of system inefficiencies and therefore will contribute significantly to improve building end-user comfort. EiT will centralize the remote control of different buildings in an automatic process and validate the solution in four different locations in Europe, with different climate typologies.
