MPC-Box - Model Predictive Control of thermal activated Building Components and Measurements in Test-Boxes

Project: Research project

Description

A robust, predictive controller utilizing weather forecast data to control thermally active
building systems, is designed, investigated and assessed in terms of energy efficiency and
comfort compared to standard controllers, especially for cooling purposes. Simulations and
real measurements using two Test-Boxes with thermally active building systems which
are constructed and built for this purpose are used to analyze energy efficiency and
comfort. Low complexity and transparency for methods and solutions should allow for
transferability of all results to guarantee maximum usability for similar applications.
