Predictive control of the CTU university building in Prague

Realization: autumn 2013

Based on the mathematical model of the CTU university building, we tohether with a friendly company Energocentrum Plus designed and installed a predictive MPC controller, which saves about 26% of heating energy a year compared to the standard control strategy. Based on the temperature measurement and the weather forecast (ambient temperature and Solar radiation) and based on the predictions from the model, we abide the interior comfort requirements while complying physical constraints of the HVAC system.
