Original Abstract

According to Escrivá-Escrivá (2011), utility systems are often managed by non-specialised technicians who need understandable and cost-effective actions to be implemented. Therefore, we can assume that tools for simulation and optimization may further improve operation of utility systems. However, a good model is essential for these purposes. The paper deals with complex utility system modelling using operational data. Our experience shows that data acquisition in common utility system of a municipal building is sometimes poor. Usability of a model based on data of lower quality is discussed and demonstrated on the case of the utility system of The National Theatre building complex in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. It shows that even model based on poor data may be useful for some energy management improvements.
