OpenBuild is a MATLAB toolbox, providing an integrated environment for design and simulation of advanced controller for Smart Buildings. The capabilities of the toolbox include:

  • Automatic generation of linear state-space building model form the detailed EnergyPlus building model.
  • Automatic generation of disturbance inputs to the linear model using EnerguyPlus
  • Modeling of HVAC systems in MATLAB
  • Modeling of electrical components in MATLAB
  • Design of advanced controllers for smart buildings
  • Co-simulation of the designed controllers with EnergyPlus
