Project Info COMPLETE Project Title

Model-Based Predictive HVAC Control Enhancement Software

Project Number DR13SDGE0006 Organization SDG&E End-use Whole Building Sector Commercial Project Year(s) 2013 - 2015

The model-based predictive HVAC control enhancement saves energy by generating a predictive model of building operations, then optimizing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system operations to meet these predicted loads. The specific model-based predictive HVAC control studied in this report provides a real-time prediction of a building’s power profile for the subsequent 24-hour period, and updates this model every 4 hours. This predictive model informs how to most efficiently control HVAC system start-up and shut down times, and optimize heating, cooling, and airflow set points.
