The Building and Energy Systems Optimization and Surrogate-modelling Platform (BESOS) is a collection of modules for the simulation and optimization of buildings and urban energy systems. One of the two core functions of the platform, energy systems design and operation, is provided by the energy hub family of modules. These use mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) to solve the energy demand-supply balance across many timesteps, subject to performance constraints relating to energy availability and equipment performance. Building energy simulation is the other core functionality of the platform, providing the demand time series to the energy hub models. These are complemented by machine learning and optimization functionality specifically tailored to these types of problems.
