ABSTRACT
Buildings consume a significant amount of energy, around 40% from the global energy consumption, as it was mentioned by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development. Thus, the energy efficiency of today’s buildings is a continuous concern and several researches were made to identify efficient and sustainable solutions to cope with the rising energy demand levels. The comfort level of a building is directly influenced by the energy demand for heating and cooling. Adaptive thermal comfort considers the possibility of a control system for the optimised functioning of the building’s installations. The paper investigates the effects of implementing control software in the automation system of a building. The software was developed based on the external parameters variation. The idea of implementing control software has appeared based on the need of maintaining defined performance requirements in several conditions that are different from the design ones.
