Abstract

A method is presented to compare different co-simulation interfaces. The comparison assesses user-friendliness and flexibility, computational costs and accuracy. Interfaces corresponding to different versions of loose and strong coupling are discussed. The specific implementations include the Functional Mockup Interface (FMI), the Building Controls Virtual Test Bed (BCVTB) and a Component Object Model (COM). A case study is introduced to present the method in a pedagogical way. The case study includes a compact thermal energy storage modelled in Trnsys and a heat sink modelled in Simulink. Generalizations of the method to realistic full-scale co-simulations are proposed.
