Simulation Setup & Configurations

  • System Configuration: The SmartFab/FlexOffice to Nordhavn system configuration integrates KIT’s SmartFab/FlexOffice system configuration into the Nordhavn system configuration. Nordhavn’s model comprises a detailed electrical and distributed heat network description, various bridging units to electricity to heat, thermal and electric storage devices, electric vehicles (EV) and supporting elements for electric vehicles (EVSE[1] as the charging infrastructure) along with a supervisory control centre. KIT’s SmartFab/FlexOffice system is integrated into Nordhavn. It affects all super-structures of Nordhavn like the heating and electrical infrastructure, the DER and the supervisory control.
  • Use-case: The cross-simulation between KIT and DTU is used to develop and characterize modelling and simulation approaches supporting the transfer of complex component-models into large system models comprising many components of low complexity. Hence, KIT’s models of the SmartFab/FlexOffice are transferred as “complex” components into the Nordhavn model and simulated on DTU’s toolchain.

Cross-Simulation Goals

The main goal of the “SmartFab/FlexOffice to Nordhavn” cross-simulation is of methodological nature, as the cross-simulation is used to develop and characterize model-transfer approaches. The aim is to find a proper level of abstraction of the SmartFab/FlexOffice component-model while preserving their most important physical characteristics. Additionally, the cross-simulation serves to transfer expertise by example, e.g. model-predictive control approaches from KIT to DTU.

Description of Tasks and Workflow

The workflow of the cross-simulation is described by three major steps. In Step 1 KIT prepares the model, controller and data description and package according to the PreCISE approach and transfers them to DTU. In Step 2 DTU sets up the model with the toolchain used to model Nordhavn and runs the simulation. Step 3 is related to the evaluation and comparison of DTU’s and KIT’s simulation and optimization results of the transferred SmartFab/FlexOffice model.
