Abstract: In this paper, a methodology for interfacing and assessing a Model Predictive Control strategy in a building simulation tool (SIMBAD) is presented. Firstly, a system identification is performed in order to derive a suitable embedded model for the predictive controller from the simulation tool. Secondly, we assess the performance of this control strategy by introducing uncertainties on forecasted weather conditions and occupancy. Finally, we provide some simulation results in order to analyse the robustness of the controller in presence of uncertainties on forecast.
