IBPSA Project 1: BIM/GIS and Modelica Framework for building and community energy system design and operationCopyright: © e3D
IBPSA Project 1 focusses on developing and demonstrating an open-source BIM/GIS and Modelica Framework for building and community energy system design and operation. The project builds further on the completed project IEA EBC Annex 60 “New generation computational tools for building and community energy systems based on the Modelica and Functional Mockup Interface standards.” The project is organized into three tasks, which are further refined into work packages as follows:
- Task 1 develops the open-source infrastructure of models and test suites to coordinate Modelica based model developments for building and district energy system design and operation. Furthermore, it coordinates research in MPC and it develops a test suite for comparing the performance of advanced control sequences called BOPTEST.
- Task 2 is developing tool-chains that link object-oriented CAD systems, GIS, building and urban design tools at various levels of detail with one another and with the Modelica models developed in task 1.
- Task 3 is focusing on validation, application, demonstration and dissemination. It includes the development of a validation test for district energy system simulation called DESTEST.
