Thierry Stephane Nouidui is an Associate Professor and the Head of the Computer Engineering and Information Technology Department at the United African University of Tanzania (https://www.uaut.ac.tz/). He is a former Principal Scientific Engineering Associate in the Simulation Research Group. His current research is focused on developing building performance simulation tools and methods for the design, operation, and commissioning of energy efficient buildings and districts. Thierry received a Ph.D in Building Physics from the University of Stuttgart in Germany and a M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Kiel in Germany. Prior to joining the Simulation Research Group, he worked as research scientist at the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics in Holzkirchen in Germany. He is member of the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA).

Awards

Best Paper Award at the 2014 IBPSA-Germany Conference -  September 23rd 2014

Marco Bonvini, Michael Wetter and Thierry Nouidui from the Simulation Research Group obtained the best paper award for their contribution "A Modelica package for building-to-electrical grid integration" at the IBPSA-Germany conference. The paper was selected among 93 peer-reviewed submissions. It presents an open-source free library in the Modelica language that contains models for different types of sources, loads, storage equipment, and transmission lines for electric power. The models can be used to represent DC, AC one-phase, and AC-three phases balanced and unbalanced systems. The models have been successfully validated against the IEEE four nodes test feeder. An example shows how the models can be used to study the integration and control of renewable energy sources in a electric distribution grid.
