Fault Modelling in Component-based HVAC Simulation

Publication Type

Conference Proceedings

Date Published




Models of faulty components or processes may either be used on-line as part of a fault detec- tion and diagnosis (FDD) system or may be used in simulations to train or test FDD procedures. Some faults may be modelled by choosing suit- able values of the parameters of fault free models, whereas other faults require specific extensions to fault free models. An example of the modelling of various faults in a cooling coil subsystem is pre- sented and different methods of using simulation in testing and training are discussed.
