The building sector of the U.S. currently consumes over 40% of the U.S. primary energy supply. This paper presents analytical methods embodied within useful software tools to quickly identify and evaluate selected building system faults that cause large building energy inefficiencies. These...
Considering the use of concrete in structural and cladding applications, and energy code requirements for inclusion of thermal insulation in building envelopes, an investigative study was carried out to determine how the interaction between thermal mass properties of concrete and thermal...
In this work, a new robust controller is proposed for building climate control in presence of parametric uncertainties. The design of the controller is based on the Model Predictive Control (MPC) framework and it includes time-varying constraints. The robust design is implemented by explicitly...
This paper presents the electric energy self-sufficiency and the grid independence rate of a residential building equipped with a photovoltaic (PV) roof, as a function of battery capacity. Thermal energy self-sufficiency is enlarged by driving a heat pump (HP) with the electricity surplus of the...
Accurate heat load forecasting is an important issue to ensure the reliable and efficient operation of a district heating system. In this paper, a hybrid model that combines similar day (SD) selection and Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) to construct SD-DNNs model for short-term load forecasting...
In this paper, the impact of climate change on thermal climate zones was reported by using more recent weather data published by the China’s National Climate Center. The impact of these changes on current building energy standards was also investigated. To quantitatively analyse the potential...
