Optimization of a residential house28th December 2016: We publish an article showing the application of our optimization software Xtreme to the design and optimization of a residential house. This article presents the multi-objective optimization where the goal is to find the optimal Pareto front which minimizes both the heating energy needs and the construction cost. A real residential house to be constructed has been used as a use case. 2 simulations software have been used to compute the energy demands of the house: the PHPP and the TRNSYS software. In this paper, the results obtained with the PHPP software are presented. The cost evaluation function was developed in this project and the optimization was performed using XTREME, a commercial optimization software.

The Xtreme software allows you to solve design challenges in many engineering disciplines (aerodynamic, structural mechanics, virtual manufacturing, noise, vibration, and many more), as well as in fields such as finance, scheduling, manufacturing, building. Virtually any design problem that can be modelled using your own or commercial simulation tools or even Microsoft Excel can be solved using Xtreme.
Xtreme is based on very advanced optimization techniques relying on artificial intellegence techniques such as genetic algorithms and artificial neural networks.
Xtreme is the most efficient numerical optimization techniques you will find on the market reducing by a factor of 10 to 25 the required number of expensive simulations to reach the optimum.
The software is very simple to use thanks to huge development/research efforts performed to avoid expert parameters to be used and tuned. As a consequence you can concentrate your effort on your own discipline and let the optimizer find the best solution for you.
