Generation Tool for Automated Thermal City Modelling

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Constructing dynamic building models of entire urban districts or cities is a time
consuming effort. An automation process is required to shorten the considerable time needed for manual input and to parameterize simulation tools. This paper presents a generation tool for fully automated thermal city modelling that generates dynamic building models with detailed heating systems. The tool is an interface between a PostgreSQL database and the dynamic building energy simulation environment IDA ICE. Tests show that up to 300 automated generated buildings with a simple geometry and 70 buildings each with a heating system can be simulated per CPU.
