English abstract:
This paper addresses the potential of the simulationassisted
operation of devices for natural ventilation.
Toward this end, a control scheme was conceived as
follows: at specific points in time, the control system
applies simulation to predict how various window
operation regimes would affect the indoor
temperature in the building over the course of the
following day. Comparison and ranking of the
simulation results is conducted using Mean
Overheating of the indoor air in selected spaces as
the relevant performance indicator. The approach
was virtually implemented in two reference
buildings, suggesting its potential toward predictive
identification of a favorable course of action in
operating devices for natural ventilation.
