A robust, predictive controller utilizing weather forecast data to control thermally active building systems, is designed, investigated and assessed in terms of energy efficiency and comfort compared to standard controllers, especially for cooling purposes. Simulations and real measurements using two Test-Boxes with thermally active building systems which are constructed and built for this purpose are used to analyze energy efficiency and comfort. Low complexity and transparency for methods and solutions should allow for transferability of all results to guarantee maximum usability for similar applications.
