English abstract:
The effectiveness of building performance simulation
can be increased if more reliable information
regarding user presence and behavior in buildings
become available. In this context, the present
contribution describes a study of control-oriented
actions by the occupants of 6 offices in an office
building over a period of nine months. The results
suggest that control behavior may be related to both
indoor environmental conditions and outdoor
environment parameters. Such relationships can
contribute to generation of dependable user action
models that could be used in building performance
simulation applications.
