Abstract

Worldwide, buildings account for ca. 40% of the total energy consumption and ca. 20% of the total CO2 emissions. While most of the energy goes into primary building use, a significant amount of energy is wasted due to malfunctioning building system equipment and wrongly configured Building Management Systems (BMS). For example, wrongly configured setpoints or building equipment, or misplaced sensors and actuators, can contribute to deviations of the real energy consumption from the predicted one. Our paper is motivated by these posed challenges and aims at pinpointing the types of problems in the BMS components that can affect the energy efficiency of a building, as well as review the methods that can be utilized for their discovery and diagnosis. The goal of the paper is to highlight the challenges that lie in this problem domain, as well as provide a strategy how to counterfeit them.
