Release

aedifion.analytics versioning.

1.6.0

Release date: 2021-11-04

What's new in v1.6.0?

  • First signal color decision on simulated savings of the recommended optimization measures
  • First inheritance of attributes between project and components reduces analysis configuration
  • Increased usability via updated signal colors, recommendations, and analysis function names

Analysis function library

  • Extended and updated analysis
    • Renaming of analysis function names
      • Note: alphanumeric_ids of the analysis functions remain unchanged
      • The word "analysis" was removed from all analysis function names
      • Some functions were renamed
    • Dynamic Control
      • The operation of the component is now determined by the degree of utilization. Thus, the analysis will not consider the pin operating message
    • Reduced Load
      • Inherit project location to determine the attribute timezone and use default timezone "Europe/Berlin" if attribute is not set
      • Increased sensitivity for detecting a reduced load for the component Room
    • Room air quality
      • Inherit project location to determine the attribute timezone and use default timezone "Europe/Berlin" if attribute is not set
    • Schedule
      • The signal color can be determined based on the simulated savings (see economic KPIs for more information). Available for Schedule on the component Fan
      • Inherit project location to determine the attribute timezone and use default timezone "Europe/Berlin" if attribute is not set
    • Setpoint Deviation
    • Thermal Comfort
      • The mapping of indoor humidity is now optional. If not mapped, the analysis considers a constant default value (50 %) for indoor air humidity
      • Inherit project location to determine the attribute timezone and use default timezone "Europe/Berlin" if attribute is not set
    • Weather Station
      • Uses the project location as the default location for the analysis
    • Updated the spectrum of signal colors of all analysis functions to better reflect the impact and average savings of a detected fault. Introduced signal color grey for nonexisting results
    • Updated recommendation texts, now including a category of the optimization measure and more pointed guidance

Component models

  • Extended component models with further pins
    • Air handling unit
      • Pins: Exhaust air temperature, Exhaust air temperature setpoint
      • Attributes: Exhaust air temperature setpoint deviation tolerance
    • Fan
      • Attributes: Nominal volume flow, Specific fan power
    • Room
      • Pins: Lighting operating message, Temperature setpoint adjustment, Valve position - cooling, Valve position - heating, Volume flow controller position - exhaust air, Volume flow controller position - supply air, Window opening

Analytics framework

  • Abstract component models
    • aedifion provides a library of curated component models that abstractly model the functioning of various physical or virtual technical equipment such as boilers, heat pumps, control loops, rooms, etc.
    • Each abstract component model has a set of pins that are placeholders for a real component's datapoints, e.g., the component model heat pump has pins for its condenser supply and return temperature.
    • Each abstract component model has a set of attributes that are placeholders for a real component's metadata such as installation parameters, nominal performance data, operation parameters, etc. E.g., the component model weather station has attributes for the longitude and latitude of its installation.
    • Instancing an abstract component model to a project and mapping of its pins and attributes creates a digital twin of physical or virtual technical equipment. Mapping is the process of attaching datapoints and attributes to a component data model instanced for a project.
  • Analysis functions
    • aedifion provides a library of algorithm functions to analyze building performance.
    • Each analysis function can be applied to one or more components. E.g., an analysis of the room air quality might apply only to the component room, while an analysis of duty cycles might apply to any physical, active component.
  • Analysis configuration
    • Configuration of which analysis functions shall be applied to which mapped component, stored as analysis instance.
    • Analysis instances can be executed on arbitrary time ranges, e.g., days, weeks, months, or whole years.
  • Analysis result
    • Each execution of an instance on a time range provides a result.
    • Results include signal colors, interpretations, recommendations, key performance indicators, and time series and are utilized individually for each analysis. Signal colors provide a visual evaluation of the analyzed operational conditions. Interpretations provide a textual summary of the analyzed operational condition. Recommendations provide a textual measure to further investigate or fix the cause of suboptimal operational performance. Key performance indicators and time series create transparency of the operational conditions analyzed.
    • Analysis results are stored in an aedifion database for later queries.
  • Utilize analytics framework
    • Analytics framework utilizable to the full extent via API. Comprehensive guides and tutorials are available.
    • The aedifion.io frontend displays the signal colors, interpretations, recommendations, and key performance indicators of the most recent analysis results for each analysis instance, including instancing and mapping of component models.
