Abstract

This report presents a technical description of an emulator for control and energy systems developed in the Heating and Ventilation Laboratory of the Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT). The examples of existing HVAC emulators are also presented in this report. `The Development of a Test Procedure for Building Automation Systems` is one of the key areas of BEMS research within the LVIS-2000 research programme, financed by the Ministry of Trade and Industry. The emulator is made up of both physical components and numerical models programmed for a computer. In VTT`s emulator, the building and its internal and external heat and moisture loads are numerical models in all cases, if they include in the system under study. VTT`s emulator can be used to study control equipment and energy management systems as well as other devices such as heat-producing equipment. This is facilitated by the emulator`s physical test equipment, which comprises an exchangeable heat-producing device, two separate cooling water systems and their heat exchangers, and the mains water supply. At the hart of the emulator`s ADP hardware there are two microcomputers linked by the ethernet line. The TRNSYS simulation software has been installed in one of the microcomputers, and the GENESIS  More>>

The TRNSYS simulation software has been installed in one of the microcomputers, and the GENESIS process control program in the other. GENESIS is not needed for running the emulation. The process interface equipment and simulation software are connected to one another via their RS-232 serial ports. The performance functionality of the emulator was tested by investigating the control of an air conditioning system with a commercial controller (substitution).}
