English abstract:
We have illustrated how computational modeling may be applied to enrich the informational repertoire of systems´ control operations for lighting. Beyond mere reactive operations based on environmental sensing, modelbased building control allows for proactive evaluation of a richer set of control options. A highly attractive feature of this model-based strategy lies in its potential for a transparent and high-level integration of multiple control agenda. Thus, complex control strategies may be formulated to simultaneously address economical and ecological considerations in providing appropriate levels of building performance.
