EBC with active participation in the TGA Congress 2023


This year's TGA Congress took place from May 23 to 24 in Berlin-Adlershof. Numerous speakers reported on the latest research and developments in the field of technical building equipment. The Institute of Energy Efficient Buildings and Indoor Climate was actively involved in the lectures, keynotes, and workshops.

Prof. Müller gave a keynote speech on the topic "AI in the building technology" and presented which possibilities and limitations exist using AI methods in building technology.

In addition, Kai Rewitz presented in his lectures the development of a rule-based control system for hybrid ventilation systems and its evaluation by a field test as well as the project DataFEE. Furthermore, he gave a pitch presentation on national and international comfort models and their benefits in practice during the workshop Thermal comfort.

Jan Richarz introduced the audience to optimized modernization schedules and explained a new approach for identification and scheduling of modernization measures for typical buildings.

Moritz Zuschlag presented a transferable approach to model energy conversion systems that focuses on scalability and parametrization effort in terms of energy neighborhoods

Verena Dannapfel gave an insight into the SUSTAIN 2 Cloud of Clouds and explained how data transparency creates operational improvements in a municipal real estate portfolio.

David Jansen, together with Pooyan Jahangiri (ROM Technik), presented challenges and solution approaches for using BIM as a data source for the simulation of HVAC systems.

In a workshop organized by the institute on The next generation of central air handling units, Prof. Müller, Martin Kremer, and Sebastian Blechmann discussed with the participants new approaches for the control of central air handling units using IoT technologies as well as the humidification systems of the future, which will provide comfortable indoor conditions as energy-efficiently as possible.
