    A generalization approach for reduced order modelling of commercial buildings
    Grey-box techniques can counter the computational inefficiency and resource-intensive nature of the conventional complex white-box models. However, these approaches might tend to be too specific in their application and scalability is limited by network order. To overcome these challenges, this study proposes a generalized approach for selection of reduced-order RC network models for commercial buildings using the peak power consumption characterization. The devised methodology is used to design the RC networks of buildings connected to district heating network at University College Dublin. The close proximity between measured and simulated demand indicate the influence of power demand on RC network selection.
