English abstract:
As in most buildings windows, shades, luminaries,
radiators, fans, and other control devices can be
operated by building occupants, information on user
control behavior is crucial toward accurate prediction
of building performance (energy consumption,
indoor environment). The present contribution
describes an effort to observe control-oriented
occupant behavior in an educational building over a
period of one year. The observations regarding
control behavior tendencies imply dependencies both
on indoor and outdoor environmental conditions and
contribute, thus, toward the derivation of realistic
user action models for building performance
simulation applications.
