Abstract

This study presents a method for supporting control strategy development and sensor selection for automated solar shading systems from a building physics perspective using building performance simulation (BPS) and gives recommendations for quality assurance in making modelling decisions. With the proposed method high performance sensor strategies (sensor type, its location and actuation thresholds) can be identified using only a limited number of simulations. The method is illustrated using sensor selection for a sun-tracking control strategy for indoor roller blinds as a case study. It is concluded that the daylighting and energy performance of such a strategy can significantly be improved through the application of this method.
