Abstract: This paper addresses the potential of the simulationassisted operation of devices for natural ventilation. Toward this end, a control scheme was conceived as follows: at specific points in time, the control system applies simulation to predict how various window operation regimes would affect the indoor temperature in the building over the course of the following day. Comparison and ranking of the simulation results is conducted using Mean Overheating of the indoor air in selected spaces as the relevant performance indicator. The approach was virtually implemented in two reference buildings, suggesting its potential toward predictive identification of a favorable course of action in operating devices for natural ventilation.
