Abstract: Building Energy Simulation (BES) is typically used in the design phase, but predicted performances are often quite different from the real building performances later measured. In recent years, a number of studies have focused on using BES in the construction and operation phases (Sterling, 2015). Use in these phases involves complex data management, advanced algorithms and targets for non-simulation experts. This paper addresses innovative calibration based on the identification of zone level Key Parameter Modifiers (Azar, 2015), fault detection methods using Kernel Principal Component Analysis, and the development required to make them usable by building energy managers.
