English abstract:
On the way to environmental sustainability, the reduction of energy consumption in industrial production is vital. By providing transparency of the processes inside a production plant, it is possible to help the facility operate more efficiently, benefiting the industry as well as the environment. Simulation models can help to provide this transparency. A large part of the energy demand is needed for the conditioning of buildings, therefore illustrating the need for building performance simulations. Using a method for deconstructing a facility into cubes, the models for the building and thermal zones are developed and used to conduct simulations of an industrial semiconductor manufacturing plant. The main focus of the simulations is to assess the impact of increasing production capacity on the heating and cooling demand. Different scenarios are presented to highlight the model as well as compare the building performance under different conditions. Finally, a conclusion is drawn and an outlook is given.
