Abstract

In order to improve the energy efficiency, while still insuring indoor comfort for a new non-residential building, a model-assisted fine-tuning methodology for control parameters was implemented. During offline experiments, where no control parameters are sent] to the building, the method was configured according to the particularities of the building. To this purpose we used a co-simulation, where the optimization algorithm for the control parameters was connected to a simulation model of the building and its technical equipment. The offline experiments show promising results regardmg energy savings when compared to good rule-based controllers. The transition to online experiments is more challenging as it depends on the way the whole building system behaves.
