SDBE 601 Advanced Building Performance Modelling
Department: PhD in Architecture and Sustainable Built Environment
Module Description: In this module the students will learn advanced modelling techniques to simulate and optimise the performance of different components used in buildings. Integration of renewable energy resources will also be addressed, e.g. solar and wind. The integrative effect of these components will also be studied. This includes both thermal & fluid modelling for some components as well as mathematical modelling and optimisation for the control systems. One or more commercial software packages will be used, e.g. IES, Homer and Matlab.
