Abstract

In this report applications of microprocessors in the climate control of buildings, results of computer calculations are given, explaining the influence of better control systems by means of microprocessors. The calculations are carried out with computer programmes for the calculation of yearly heating and cooling loads in a building and the yearly energy consumption for various zones in a building with different airconditioning systems. Two microprocessor applications are treated in this report: lighting control depending on daylight level, and the possibility of mechanical ventilation during the night to cool down the building mass and to reduce the maximum inside air temperatures during daytime.
