I want to share with you two papers for controlling dynamic shading which I presented on BauSIM 2018 and PowerSkin 2019 conferences.
- Exploring the potential of the dynamic facade simulating daylight and energy performance of complex fenestration systems (venetian blinds)
- A simulation-based framework exploring the controls for a dynamic facade with electrochromic glazing (EC)
In order to find an effective control strategy for dynamic facades such as a complex fenestration system (e.g. venetian blinds) or a switchable window (e.g. EC), these papers proposed a simulation-based framework that explores different scenarios for the most appropriate window states.
By using a weighted penalty function method the multi objective criteria for providing visual comfort, thermal comfort and energy saving have been defined.
For these studies I have used Honeybee[+] to generate day lighting annual results (3 phase method).
This paper also addressed a common error of simulating dynamic facade, “thermal inertia and initialization issue”, and a method to overcome.
Thank you all.
