AbstractIntroduction to basic concepts from automatic control theory and their application to the control and automation of buildings.
ObjectiveIntroduce students to fundamental concepts from control theory: State space models, feedback. Demonstrate the application of these concepts to building control for energy efficiency and other objectives.
ContentIntroduction to modeling
State space models and differential equations
Laplace transforms and basic feedback control
Discrete time systems
Model predictive control for building climate regulation
Regulating building energy consumption and energy hub concepts
Practical implementation of Building Automation (BA) systems:
- Energy-efficient control of room air quality, heating and cooling, domestic hot water, shading, etc.
- Stability and robustness; Cascaded control
Prerequisites / NoticeExposure to ordinary differential equations and Laplace transforms.
