Phase I

Phase I of the OptiControl project dealt with the development of predictive control strategies in order to reduce the energy usage of buildings, improve occupant comfort, and reduce peak electricity demand. The focus was on the automated optimal control of blinds, electric lighting, heating, cooling, and ventilation in individual building zones.

Project results were: software, models and data sets for the simulation-based assessment of building control strategies; novel control algorithms and strategies; new algorithms for improved weather predictions at a building's location; analysis of energy saving potentials related to control; preparation of the demonstration project.
