Prof. Nouidui and the Nouidui Consulting Group have significant experiences with the following projects:
- Spawn of EnergyPlus: The Spawn of EnergyPlus, called SOEP, is a next-generation simulation engine, for building and control energy systems. Information about the project can be found at https://lbl-srg.github.io/soep/
- The Buildings Control Virtual Test Bed (BCVTB): The Building Controls Virtual Test Bed is a software environment that allows users to couple different simulation programs for co-simulation, and to couple simulation programs with actual hardware. Information about the project can be found at https://simulationresearch.lbl.gov/bcvtb
- Modelica Buildings Library: The Modelica Buildings library is a free open-source library with dynamic simulation models for building and district energy and control systems. Information about the project can be found at https://simulationresearch.lbl.gov/modelica/
- EnergyPlusToFMU: EnergyPlusToFMU is a software package written in Python which allows users to export the building simulation program EnergyPlus as a Functional Mock-up Unit (FMU). Information about the project can be found at https://simulationresearch.lbl.gov/projects/energyplustofmu
- SimulatorToFMU: SimulatorToFMU is a software package written in Python which allows users to export a Python-driven simulation program or a Python script as a Functional Mock-up Unit. Information about the project can be found at https://github.com/LBNL-ETA/SimulatorToFMU.
