MPC control of Hollandsch Huys building, Hasselt, Belgium
For a modern office building in Hasselt, we successfully designed and in cooperation with a friendly company Energocentrum Plus and the KUL university in Leuven installed a predictive MPC control of heating and cooling. In addition to energy savings in heating, another goal of the project was to test a suitability of a predictive control for ground heat pumps. Current analysis of the applied control shows a reduction of heating costs by 20-30%. The information obout the project is freely available on the project site geotabs.eu.
