This book presents a systematic methodology for building performance evaluation and diagnosis viewing building system as a whole. The evaluation tool is developed based on simplified building energy models and consolidation AHU models.

Building energy consumption Building energy efficiency Energy benchmarking Machine learning. In building sector, ANN models have been applied for fast estimation of heating and cooling loads (Aydinalp et al. 2004; Li et al. 2009b; Alam et al. Automated fault detection and diagnostics. ANN. Artificial neural network.

Therefore, the performance of algorithms is crucial to achieving effective . A benchmark building and a design optimization problem are also developed.

Therefore, the performance of algorithms is crucial to achieving effective energy efficient design techniques. This study evaluates algorithms used for building energy efficient design optimization. A set of performance indices, namely, stability, robustness, validity, speed, coverage, and locality, is proposed to evaluate the overall performance of algorithms. Hooke–Jeeves algorithm, Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithm II, and Multi-Objective Particle Swarm Optimization algorithm are evaluated by using the proposed performance indices and benchmark design problem.

The report is not explicitly built on the case studies, although these have provided important input on a general basis.

Energy efficiency measures are often cost effective, increase security of supply and good for the environment. The report is not explicitly built on the case studies, although these have provided important input on a general basis. Acknowledgement Besides the case study representatives, we would also like to thank Mr Håkan Sköldberg and Mr John Johnsson at Profu in Mölndal and Mr Frank Kärrå at LFF in Göteborg for fruitful discussions and advices given.

Energy performance gap is considered as one of the most significant issues associated with the assessment of energy consumption in the built environment. Calibrated energy performance models facilitate a baseline representation of existing building performance patterns, thus, further accuracy in diagnosis, operation and energy conservation measures (ECMs) become possible through the use of calibrated models.

However, far more e↵ort has gone into developing these algorithms than into assessing their performance.

Energy modeling is used mainly during building design or to recommend .

Energy modeling is used mainly during building design or to recommend retrofits. Once a building is in operation, measured energy data from utility bills are used to compare similar buildings and track performance. Evaluation of a building s as-built efficiency can rely on energy simulation to separate building systems from building operation variables.

Today the scope of evaluations of building performance continues to grow. Although FPE and POE are often used interchangeably in literature and practice, FPE can be significantly different from POE reflecting the changing needs of the real estate industry

quantify building energy performance in a building information modeling (BIM) tool. b) Perform 10 iterations of the evaluations. At each iteration, the method leaves one partition out as testing case and uses the rest of the data to train the regression model. The proposed tool provides quick energy performance feedback to the designer during the design process using a regressionbased building energy model.

Effective and efficient performance diagnosis and evaluation is important and practical with easily available measurements at the building level in most contemporary buildings. This book presents a systematic methodology for building performance evaluation and diagnosis viewing building system as a whole. This methodology involves the development of a building global performance evaluation tool and practical strategy and approach for practical applications using the evaluation tool. The evaluation tool is developed based on simplified building energy models and consolidation AHU models. With the performance prediction using the tool, a performance signature-based diagnosis strategy is developed for performance diagnosis, and a performance evaluation approach for assessing the energy efficiency of alternative strategies for building retrofitting and upgrading. This book is about academic research on building energy performance evaluation and diagnosis, and is a good reference for graduate student and researchers working on building environment and energy areas.
