Modelling Urban Energy Systems: Disaggregate activity-based models of demand
Room GO1 |
14 Upper Woburn Place | London | WC1H 0NN | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
Aruna Sivakumar, is a lecturer in travel behaviour and demand modelling at the Centre for Transport Studies, Imperial College London. She also leads the transport work streams in multi-disciplinary research projects such as the BP-sponsored Urban Energy Systems project and the EPSRC sponsored Digital City Exchange project
This seminar presents the conceptual and modelling frameworks underlying the development of SynCity, an urban systems modelling tool developed as part of the BP-sponsored Urban Energy Systems (UES) project at Imperial College London. SynCity, a hierarchical model system developed in Java, comprises four layers – a spatial layout model, an agent-based microsimulation model of urban activities (AMMUA), a resource flow and conversion/network optimisation model; and an urban energy service networks model. The focus of this talk will be on the AMMUA module, describing a disaggregate and econometric activity-based approach to modelling resource demands.
Places will be on a first come first served basis. If you are no longer able to attend please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
