What is the LoadProfileGenerator?
What can it do?

  • The LPG is a modelling tool for residential energy consumption
  • It performs a full behaviour simulation of the people in a household and uses that to generate load curves.
  • It has various for Germany households predefined.
  • It generates CSV files for the import into other simulation software.
  • Additionally it generates a ton of different reports to help with modelling.
  • The focus is the individual household. It is possible to evalute 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.
