Abstract [en]

Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems consist of all the

equipment that control the conditions and distribution of indoor air. Indoor

air must be confortable and healthy for the occupants to maximize their

productivity. Moreover, HVAC energy consumption is between 20% and 40%

of the total energy consumption in developed countries and accounts around

33% of the global CO

2emissions. So the study of HVAC systems plays an

important role in building science.

The aim of this project is to identify mathematical models that will be

employed by intelligent control algorithms which guarantee human comfort

indoors, energy saving and less CO

2emissions at the same time. Three models,

based on first-principle physical knowledge, are proposed for CO

2concentration,

temperature and humidity, respectively, for a room in the Q-building at KTH.

Thermodynamic equations and an original estimation of the number of the

occupiers of the room are employed.

Validation shows that models have really good performances, even with a

short training dataset. Discussions on the obtained results are given and some

ideas for future work are proposed.
