Validation and application of the energy simulation of buildings to the study of control strategies
Context and objectives
The internship, led by Fatima Benali at MINES ParisTech and supervised by Patrick Schalbart, aims to complete the validation of the COMFIE thermo-aeraulic model and to prepare control-command applications.
An initial step will be to carry out a comparison with experimental data and results of other models on a house located in Bavaria. This exercise will make it possible to better understand the influence of various uncertain parameters such as thermal bridges and air infiltration on the simulation results, and to analyse the causes of differences between simulation and measurement.
Control strategies will then be compared in terms of the energy, economic and environmental balance, in order to gain initial experience in automation. The internship can in fact lead to a doctoral thesis concerning the study of an optimal management strategy integrating local energy production on the scale of an urban block.
