Reheat optimization of the variable-air-volume box

Energy, 2010, vol. 35, issue 5, 1997-2005

Abstract: A data-driven approach for optimizing the reheat process in a variable-air-volume box is presented. Data-mining algorithms derive temporal predictive models from the reheat process data. The bi-objective model formed is solved with a modified particle swarm optimization algorithm. To increase computational efficiency, two levels of non-dominated solutions are introduced while solving the optimization model. A model predictive control strategy is used to generate controls minimizing the reheat output while maintaining the thermal comfort at an acceptable level.
