CANCELLED - RAL SEMINAR: Modeling for Smart, Sustainable and Resilient Cities

 

Dr. Wangda Zuo DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL, ENVIRONMENTAL AND ARCHITECTURAL ENGINEERING UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO BOULDER

This presentation introduces some of our recent research in developing and applying the next generation multi-scale modeling technology for the optimal design and operation of smart, sustainable and resilient cities. An equation-based object-oriented modeling language Modelica is adopted and an open source Modelica Buildings library for building and community energy systems was developed with the support of US Department of Energy (DOE). We will briefly discuss the opportunities and fundamental challenges in modeling the building and city systems in urban built environment using the equation-based language. We will then demonstrate the usage of Modelica-based technology using different research projects: (1) a holistic modeling platform for energy efficient cooling of data centers; (2) modeling of smart, sustainable, and connected communities by integrating energy, transportation and communication systems into a single modeling platform; (3) human-center computational framework for resilient coast cities. Finally, we will discuss some of our ongoing research for smart, sustainable and resilient cities, including 1) developing NREL’s URBANopt platform for the design and optimization of future district energy systems; 2) optimal co-design of integrated thermal-electrical networks and control systems for grid-interactive efficient district (GED) energy systems; 3) a new computational platform for city-scale emergency management.
