A Simulation-Assisted Control Method for Natural Ventilation

Ardeshir Mahdavi, Kristina Orehounig

Abstract: In a simulation-assisted building systems control approach, control decisions are made in that presently available (conceivable) control options are virtually projected onto a future time step. Subsequently, the respective consequences (values of pertinent performance indicators) are predicted, compared, and ranked. The present paper explores the potential of this approach in the realm of natural ventilation.
