A Thermal Comfort Aware Online HVAC Management and Its On-site Experiment
According to government statistics, residential energy consumption accounts for about 40% of society’s total energy consumption. Recent research reveals that HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems are responsible for about half of the energy consumption in the residential sectors in developed countries. In this research, online HVAC management methodology is proposed to contribute to energy saving. The proposed HVAC management methodology is composed of an accurate temperature estimation model and HVAC scheduling algorithm. The on-site experiment of the proposed methodology is performed on the university building, and practical HVAC management is realized.
