Inhabitants' behaviour is a significant factor that influences energy consumption and has been previously incorporated as static activity profiles within simulation for energy control & management. In this paper an agent-based approach to simulate reactive/deliberative group behaviour has been proposed and implemented. It takes into account perceptual,(More)
RESUME. Ce papier analyse deux approches de modélisation du comportement d'occupants dans le bâtiment. Il compare une approche purement statistique avec une approche basée sur la simulation sociale dans un environnement multi-agent. L'étude concerne les ouvertures de porte dans un bureau. ABSTRACT. This paper analyzes two modeling approaches for occupant(More)
The present study is conducted to find out the effects of extended working hours on family wellbeing of dual earners. Pakistan being a developing country where traditionally males are the bread earners and females are considered to be the home makers, the trend is changing. Females are now considered equal partners in sustaining family livelihood. This(More)
This paper deals with an interoperability solution based on co-simulation that ensures tools collaborative working for building's global simulation. The proposed solution couples two specialized tools from different domains and characterized by different modelling approaches in order to simulate a low energy building. A dynamic thermal envelope model in(More)
— Inhabitants' behaviour in buildings has a strong impact on the energy consumption patterns resulting in energy waste. The existing multi agent and centralized energy management approaches are focused on consumption optimization and load predictions without taking into account the inhabitants' behaviour. We argue that the consumption optimization without(More)
