This deliverable describes the outcomes of Task 2.1 of Local4Global WP2. It provides an overview of methods and approaches with a potential to tackle the challenges involved in the control of TSoS, and defines to the maximum possible extent, the relevant modelling and analysis requirements. It also formulates a common working framework aiming at enabling the analysis, design, development and application of an effective control approach for arbitrary TSoS through the R&D activities of the subsequent project WPs.

The implementation plan aims to provide a framework for implementation of the Local for Global optimization algorithms into the Building TSoS Use Case (BUC). The Local for global optimization algorithm will be firstly evaluated through dynamic simulation. In the next step, the optimization algorithm will be implemented in the Building TSoS Use Case. To draw a plan for the implementation, a brief overview of the Building TSoS Use Case and the installed equipment and systems will be presented. Furthermore, the implementation strategies for both simulation and real implementations will be explained and the requirements for these strategies will be described in detail. Additionally, the control environment, automation and monitoring systems of the Building TSoS Use Case will be explained.Figures for evaluation task and key performance indicators will be also introduced. Finally, it will be discussed how the above-mentioned implementation should be performed.

The verification report aims to document how the Local4Global framework is realized in the building use case and that it is operable to run the experiments. Therefore, the final Local4Global BUC framework is briefly described, the dedicated resources are interrelated and denoted, the data exchange in the interfaces of these resources is analyzed and the overall functionality is proven.

To evaluate the L4GCAO system, it must be implemented on the test bed and its effects must be recorded and analysed. The development of the implementation plans and the final implementation is documented in this report. The architecture of the use case is described in terms of what was initially proposed and what was finally implemented. Initially, field tests were intended to be conducted by implementing the L4GCAO control algorithms in the traffic signal controls along the studied network. As the project progressed, simulations were required to demonstrate the effectiveness of the control system in order to gain approval for conducting field tests. Approval was gained, but the final steps of implementing the control strategy was hindered by external factors. Thus, simulations became the primary source of evaluation material.

The implementation report documents the final and executed strategy for the L4G implementation within the building use case. Modifications and advances towards the implementation plan are lightened and explained, the real L4G BUC framework is illustrated to enable a consistent and deep understanding of the whole implementation work. The main results beside the figures that will be generated within the evaluation task are the lessons learned. They represent the experiences gathered by implementing advanced control algorithms into a BMS and therewith they are valuable for L4G as well as for all similar endeavors.

The Evaluation Plan will prescribe the general evaluation approach, the assessment objectives, the indicators to be used, the methods and timing of measurement and the measurement conditions, and statistical issues such as sample sizes. Establishing this Evaluation Plan is an iterative process based on a first draft version as basis for further discussion within the project and with the project officer. After that the final version will be consolidated, complimented by questionnaire details for the evaluation of the user acceptance.

The first part of the evaluation focuses on the impact assessment based on the performance of the Local4Global system during the implementation phase. The evaluation indicators relate to average daily system performance, maximum and minimum values (peaks) of system performance, user-comfort, and cost-efficiency of the Local4Global system as well as operators’ and users’ satisfaction with the Local4Global’s interfaces. The second part of the evaluation is the analysis of the users’ acceptance. Users include the traffic system and end users. The evaluation is performed according to the German guidelines for socio-economic evaluation (EWS).

Within the project Local4Global, a systematic control design methodology and the resulted tools/products have been developed, analyzed and extensively tested/evaluated that overcome the main shortcomings of the state-of-the-art in controlling Technical Systems-of-Systems (TSoS). The purpose of this report is to provide a brief, but comprehensive, evaluation of the attributes and the impact of Local4Global methodology/design tool/control system. The evaluation is based on the simulation experiments performed and, most importantly, on the results of the real-life Local4Global experiments in project’s Use Cases.
