Journal of Building Performance Simulation, 6(3), 199-219. As far as the lighting services are concerned, control systems offer an important opportunity of managing lighting systems and reducing energy consumption, due to the use of integration strategies between daylight and electric lighting and strategies based on the occupancy of spaces.The results of an experimental case study of ten offices in Torino (Italy), in which a custom-design building automation and control system has been designed to control both the lighting plants and the air conditioning system, are presented in this paper. Extraction of supervisory building control rules from model predictive control of windows in a mixed mode building. Evaluation of automatic priced based thermostat control for peak energy reduction under residential time-of-use utility tariffs.
