Akihiro Yamada, Tatsuo Nagai, Tshirou Inou

Abstract: To minimize the total power consumption of a central air conditioning system, optimal control variables are necessary. A simulation of a central air conditioning system and its components are modeled. Modeling of air conditioning equipment required optimization, and power consumption formulas are created from experimental data. Optimal control is applied to the actual central air conditioning systems. The effectiveness of optimization and accuracy of optimization calculations are verified. Prediction of air conditioning load is required for the optimization calculation. Load prediction formulas are created and the accuracy is verified. Optimization calculation is applied to general central air conditioning system. The behavior of optimization calculation results and the necessity of various trends of initial values are verified.
