EnEff-BIM

Planning and optimizing the operation of energy-efficient new constructions and existing buildings

 

Aim

Designing, dimensioning and optimizing the operation of energy-efficient new constructions and existing buildings based on building information modeling (BIM)

Methodology

  • Developing prototype sensors for detecting the local, directional equivalent temperature
  • Using the indoor climate measuring system DressMAN 2.0 as a modular sensor platform
  • Developing interfaces with measurement instrumentation and co-simulation
  • Creating comfort models for the overall assessment of thermal comfort in vehicles
  • Creating an empirical model for local coefficients of convective heat transfer at the human body
  • Selecting, testing and assessing close-to-the-body, energy-efficient air-conditioning measures

Result

  • Use of topological information from BIM sources for automatically networked functional mock-up units (FMU)
  • Automated initialization of co-simulation facilitates structural analyses of the building system by interchanging individual modules
  • Identification of optimization potentials by extending parametric variant studies to structural variant studies
