Advanced Decision Making for Hvac Engineers : Creating Energy Efficient Smart Buildings (Hardcover)
about this item
This book focuses on some of the most energy-consuming HVAC systems, illuminating the huge opportunities for energy savings in buildings that operate with these systems. Cutting-edge decision making approaches and algorithms are discussed, such as decision making under uncertainty, genetic algorithms, fuzzy logic, artificial neural networks, agent based modeling, game theory. These methods are then applied to HVAC systems, in order to help designers select the best options among the many available pathways for designing building HVAC systems and applications. The discussion further evolves to depict how the buildings of the future can incorporate these advanced decision-making algorithms to become autonomous and truly ‘smart’.
