Model predictive control (MPC) has shown potential in improving building performance but is bottlenecked by the difficulty in constructing control-oriented models. The challenge lies in evaluating the sufficiency of the model and the data usage beforehand. This paper bridges the knowledge gaps in the interactions between data requirements, model qu...
Reinforcement learning (RL) has been shown to have the potential for optimal control of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Although research on RL-based building control has received extensive attention in recent years, there is limited real-world implementation to evaluate its performance while keeping occupants in the loop...
Mixed-mode buildings utilise a combination of natural ventilation from operable building envelopes and mechanical systems to realise climate-friendly ventilation and cooling. The control of such hybrid systems is a promising solution to improve energy efficiency for buildings and comfort for occupants. Meanwhile, it is also a challenging task due t...
To achieve effective mixed-mode ventilation in the tropics using a combination of natural ventilation from operable windows, elevated air movement from ceiling fans, and cooling from the air-conditioning and mechanical ventilation (ACMV) system. The aim is to maximize conditions when natural ventilation is desirable and reduce reliance on energy-intensive air-conditioning, thereby contributing to urban sustainability and significantly reducing cooling energy consumption.
