A constrained model predictive control for the building thermal management with optimal setting design

Noureddine Boutchich, Ayoub Moufid, Najib Bennis


Today, the building sector is the most important consumer of energy. The main challenge in building management is to obtain the desired performance taking into account many aspects such as comfort requirements, variation of building physical characteristics, system constraints, and energy management. For this purpose, a predictive control approach applied to the building thermal has been designed to achieve desired performances combined with an energy optimization approach based on intrinsic system parameters. The developed approach is applied with an online identification system for effective predictive control to take into account the reel building characteristics and to choose the optimal tuning parameters. The simulation results show good performances in terms of accuracy and robustness face to internal and external disturbances with respect to system constraints.
