Abstract: Above and beyond improving the efficiency of the building envelope and the energy supply system, the demand-side flexibility in terms of load shifting and peak reduction are vital factors in further increasing the share of volatile renewable energy sources. The thermal activation of building components, like floors and ceilings, enables the cost-effective potential for short-term energy storage to fulfil these requirements. In order to exploit the storage capabilities of active building systems, a reliable model predicted control (MPC) approach is required. However, primarily if a large glass façade element is utilised, the appropriate modelling of solar loads is critical for an effective MPC operation. Hence, based on a dynamic building simulation tool, a characteristic map for the solar load prediction of a glass façade system in combination of external venetian blinds was generated to enhance the state-space model approach for the MPC algorithm. The comparison with a conventional state-space model approach shows the integration of a detailed characteristic map can only marginally improve the prediction accuracy. The additional information required from the glass façade manufacturer and the associated simulation effort is not of substantial value. In contrast, the conventional grey box model enables an entirely datadriven parameter identification, without the manufacturers’ data. Furthermore, the MPC optimisation procedure, searching for the best control strategy, can be more efficient (solver-based optimisation), with shorter computing turnaround times.
