Workshop on Building Energy Models (BEMs) and Model Predictive Control (MPC), January 30, 2019, Derio
FHP H2020 project together with MOEEBIUS and SABINA H2020 projects are organising first FHP national technical workshop that will be focused on Building Energy Models (BEMs) and MPC implementations in real world applications. The workshop will be organised at Tecnalia (Derio, Spain) on the January 30, 2019. BEMs describe the thermal response of buildings, providing an estimation of the energy needed to keep them in comfort conditions. The different techniques used for this purpose will be explained, ranging from physical to machine learning modeling, as it is crucial to understand them to know when to apply the different model techniques on different scenarios. Model Predictive Controllers (MPCs), based on BEMs, are a key element in the process of improving the operational performance of HVACs and Building Management Systems (BMSs). The challenge nowadays is to increase their reliability, affordability and integrability, but this target is being pursued using different implementation strategies. These strategies will be revised so as to know their advantages and disadvantages. Registration form including the detailed programme (in Spanish) is available here.
