English abstract:
Building automation is an important part of state-of-the-art building management in order to attain most efficient operation in accordance with comfort requirements, energy consumption, or budget allowance. For this purpose, current building management systems enable communication with subjacent systems at the field and automation level by definition of mostly syntactical technology mappings. However, integration of building automation systems for management and control purposes also needs to address the semantics of these subsystems, their cooperation, and their interference. In this work, such an integration approach is presented that enables smart control of building automation resources by the use of semantic technologies. An OWL ontology is developed in order to represent and link knowledge of all relevant domains. Furthermore, an interface concept for seamless and interoperable cross-border communication in the heterogeneous building automation environment is introduced. Finally, an application scenario illustrates the functional capabilities of this approach for smart control in building management.
