Energy-efficient Buildings Control

Learning Outcomes

  1. Summarize the structure of the system for ensuring climate comfort in buildings
  2. Explain opportunities and challenges in climate control in buildings
  3. Use mathematical models of components of the system for ensuring climate comfort in buildings in analysis of building operation and control system design
  4. Breakdown the building operation through the level of zones, level of central heating/cooling medium preparation and level of building microgrid
  5. Explain the mode of predictive control application with mathematical programming usage through all three building levels: zones, central heating/cooling medium preparation and building microgrid
