This study aims to develop different control strategies for application to nonlinear model of a thermal unit and compare their performances as an advanced thermal control methods for HVAC applications of sustainable buildings. The mathematical description of thermal unit was obtained exploiting a data-driven and physically meaningful nonlinear continuous-time model, which represents a test-bed used in passive air conditioning for sustainable housing applications. The presented controller strategies use both inside temperature and air flow control in the thermal unit. The proposed control schemes were assessed with extensive simulations and Monte-Carlo analysis in the presence of modelling and measurement errors. The contribution of this work consists of providing an application example of the design and testing through simulations, of a data-driven thermal unit control. Furthermore, this study provides an insight into different control strategies in air conditioning systems and helps the practitioners and HVAC learners to design proper controller solutions.
