Modeling of indoor thermal conditions for comfort control in buildings.

Author(s) : PENG X.

Type of monograph: Thesis

Summary

This thesis, presented for the degree of Doctor, studies two simplified modeling methods of indoor dynamic temperature distributions. The air flow field and effective exchange coefficients can be precalculated with the steady-state computational fluid dynamic (CFD) calculation. Simulation results show that much better control results can be obtained if, instead of the measured temperature of the recirculated air, the estimated temperature of the working zone is controlled. Extract of contents: introduction; a brief description of CFD; visualization and prediction of indoor air flows; simplified dynamic modeling of indoor temperature distributions; real-time estimations of indoor temperatures; estimation and control of the temperature of the working zone; recommendations.
