Study on the application of reinforcement learning in the operation optimization of HVAC system
TLDR
An innovative RL-based model-free control strategy combining rule-based and RL- based control algorithm as well as complete application process is proposed and shown to be more suitable for small-scale operation optimization problems.
Model Predictive Control for the Operation of Building Cooling Systems
TLDR
This brief addresses real-time implementation and feasibility issues of the MPC scheme by using a simplified hybrid model of the system, a periodic robust invariant set as terminal constraints, and a moving window blocking strategy.
Energy-Efficient Control of a Building HVAC System using Reinforcement Learning

Reinforcement Learning for Control of Building HVAC Systems
TLDR
Both the RL and MPC controllers are able to maintain temperature and humidity constraints, and they both reduce energy use significantly compared to the baseline, though the savings by RL is smaller than that by MPC.
