The present work focuses on investigating ways to enhance the energetic performance of buildings i.e. on proposing control strategies for managing energy in buildings. Therefore, control algorithms were tested using a prototype, composed of a building mock-up, a monitoring system and a data post-treatment software. The data acquisition system allows… (More)
Energy consumption in buildings is currently a real problem. That is why both assessment of energy performance and effective energy management are essential. In this context, the present paper focuses on developing a commercial monitoring station (BEMS) with the support of three industrial partners, Apex-BP Solar, Pyrescom and the "Centre Scientifique et… (More)
This paper deals with the modelling of a multizone university building in the town of Perpignan, in southern France. An energy simulation software (EnergyPlus) is used to create a model of the building's thermal behaviour. The building has been instrumented and the comparison between simulated and measured temperatures validates the obtained model.
