Abstract [en]

This paper describes the methodology used for selecting the most influential parameters on the energy performance of a building, using limited computing power. Detailed building energy performance models development and their manual calibration are depicted. Novel interfaces for the connection of a detailed building simulation software with advanced analytics are then presented. After a first screening of the parameters by domain experts, two techniques are deployed on the models to reduce the number of parameters to be considered in an automatic calibration process: boundaries check and Morris method. The methodology is applied on two non-residential buildings. Finally, the study results are presented, providing deep insight on the buildings energy performance and thus setting the basis for automatic model calibration and faults detection.
