English abstract:
This paper reports on ongoing work toward
implementing a predictive control approach for
buildings systems for ventilation, lighting, and
shading. The main objective of this method is the
optimized control of multiple devices toward usage of
passive cooling and natural lighting. Thereby, control
options (various opening positions of windows,
shades, etc.) are generated and computationally
assessed using a combination of option space
navigation via genetic algorithms and numeric
