Combining Formal Definition of a Simulation Model with Heuristics to Improve Building Sustainability

We present a new paper on WSC 2018. Soon you will be able to access to the paper on the website. Abstract: Sustainability is related with environmental, social and economic variables. Each one of these areas is, by itself, complex … Continue reading Combining Formal Definition of a Simulation Model with Heuristics to Improve Building Sustainability

Simulation model to find the best comfort, energy and cost scenarios for building refurbishment

Abstract This article proposes a methodology to assess building behaviour, whilst taking its life cycle into account. Understanding of the system can be obtained by combining well-known energy consumption calculation engines (TRNSYS) with co-simulation processes defined using Specification and Description … Continue reading Simulation model to find the best comfort, energy and cost scenarios for building refurbishment
