Boiler plant


The simulated boiler plant serves a 12-story building with individual floors having a dedicated AHU serving five zones, and individual zones having a dedicated VAV terminal unit. Each terminal unit has a reheat coil that uses hot water produced by the plant. The plant consists of two parallel boilers and pumps that distribute the hot water to these reheat coils. Sensors and valves are also used to control water flow through the plant. The data set was created using EnergyPlus-Modelica co-simulation and comprises a collection of comma separated value (CSV) files. Each CSV file represents either a fault-free case or a faulty case representing a single fault type at a specific severity level. A separate data inventory file documents key information for the data set, including system type and diagram, control sequence, description of data points, and the faulty and fault-free scenarios represented in each CSV file.
