English abstract:
In predictive simulation-based building systems
control, candidate control options (i.e., various
combinations of the control device states) for future
time instances are proactively simulated and
evaluated with regard to control objectives. Thus,
preferable control actions are identified and
instantiated. A number of virtual and prototypical
implementations of this concept have been
introduced in the past, especially in the field of
lighting and shading controls. Further studies
augmented the simulation-based predictive building
systems strategy with agent-based technologies and
machine-learning methods. More recently, we have
explored applications in natural ventilation and
passive cooling. Using content from previous
publications, this keynote addresses simulationsupported
predictive building systems control,
focusing on its application toward passive cooling in
