Abstract: Building Automation System is used for operation, management, and control of building systems. Energy simulation modeling can be used as a tool to analyze the performance of buildings. This paper discusses how the Building Controls Virtual Test Bed (BCVTB) program can be used as a platform to link multiple programs and systems to generate and analyze the advanced building performance data. A real-time process of building commissioning and performance analysis, utilizing the BCVTB platform, is tested. Results are discussed in terms of pros and cons of this approach. Future development plans are proposed to improve the energy performance of buildings.
