The present work is focused on the control of indoor thermal comfort in buildings equipped with HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) systems. The occupants’ thermal comfort sensation is addressed here by the well-known comfort index (PMV Predicted Mean Vote). In this context, different strategies for the control algorithms are proposed by using only-one-actuator system that can be associated with a cooling and/or heating system. The first strategy is related to the thermal comfort… CONTINUE READING
