An Open IFC To Modelica Workflow For Energy Performance Analysis Using The Integrated District Energy Assessment By Simulation (Ideas) Library

Ando Andriamamonjy, Ralf Klein, Dirk Saelens

Abstract: This paper presents the development of the open PYTHON IFC interface for the Integrated District Energy Assessment by Simulation (IDEAS) Modelica library. It adapts IFC to be compatible with IDEAS and subsequently generates automatically a graphically represented Modelica model. The interface was tested on a real world facility where the reliability of the data mining process was emphasized. Nonetheless, it was pointed out that an improved IFC schema towards Building Energy Simulation can improve the presented interface.
