English abstract:
This paper presents an in-situ calibrated model-based approach to treat natural ventilation as an integral element of the operation of the buildings' thermal systems.Specifically, the potential of statistically-based and numeric air flow models is explored as part of a hybrid building controls scheme. Toward this end, two case studies are described. In one case, the underlying predictive model is based on the statistical treatment of data obtained from a set of insitu measurements in a tyoical office space. In the second case, a multi-zone air-flow model is used to predict the freh air volume flows into the building interior. The resulting air flow models can be integrated within a model-based control approach toward the operation of the buildings' ventilation systems.
