Abstract

For most people; a comfortable living and mobility are basic needs. With the rising individual demand for energy as well as the diminishing fossil energy resources; new optimized concepts for energy supply and usage are required. To address these challenges; renewable energy sources; decentralized storage; and electric mobility concepts are matters of rapidly growing importance.

Future building energy systems have to successfully integrate user demands; local renewable energy; storage systems and charging infrastructure; a task requiring extensive scrutinizing.

Typical questions to the engineer are to compare different system layouts with respect to sustainability; cost; and robustness; or to identify setscrews in an energy system to optimize components and control algorithms.

This paper describes an approach to solve such questions using simulations with the non-causal language Modelica. Modeling paradigms and examples are shown. Special emphasize is given to the “Green Building” library and its components; bringing major building energy systems and electric vehicles to the same platform.
