What is the LoadProfileGenerator?
What can it do?

  • The LPG is a modeling tool for residential energy consumption
  • It performs a full behavior simulation of the people in a household and uses that to generate load curves.
  • It has various German households predefined.
  • It generates CSV files for the import into other simulation software.
  • Additionally, it generates a ton of different reports to help with modeling.
  • The focus is the individual household. It is possible to evaluate larger populations, but this will require significant work.

What is the LoadProfileGenerator NOT?

  • The LPG does not provide any load curves for commercial buildings yet.
  • The LPG does not provide any load curves for offices yet.
  • It is not well suited to simulate populations above about a 1000 people.
  • It does not include electromobility.

Version 6.4

on February 22, 2017

Changes Small bugfixes when importing old databases New trait time estimates. Earlier the estimates were showed how often the trait would be executed if no constraints applied at all. Now additionally an estimate based on the standard calculations is given for all traits that are used in the predefined households. It still needs work, but should already be a large improvement. Added an area to the modular household screen to show an estimate of how well-defined a person is.
