English abstract:
This paper presents a simulation-based control method toward the operation of natural
ventilation devices in buildings. This method involves the comparison and ranking of the
simulated (future) consequences of alternative (present) control actions. A computational
emulation of this novel control strategy is illustrated using two reference objects. Thereby, a
thermal simulation application is incorporated as an integral component of the buildings
control system.
