Thermal room modelling adapted to the test of HVAC control systems.

Author(s) : RIEDERER P.

Type of monograph: Thesis


Thesis for a combined doctorate of the Ecole des Mines de Paris and TU Dresden. It develops a new room model assuming non-homogeneous room conditions and distinguishing between different sensor positions. Extract from the table of contents: context and objectives; analysis of phenomena in a heated, cooled or air-conditioned room; analysis of existing room models and definition of criteria for a new model; model development (system definition and general equations of the convective room model; division of the room into sub-volumes; study and selection of correlations for convective phenomena; development of the convective room model; implementation of the room model in the graphical simulation environment; experimental validation of the room model; sensitivity analysis on important parameters of the room model); applications (simulation of a building; single room tests; VAV whole building performance tests).
