A robust controller is developed, using advanced nonlinear inverse dynamics (NID) controller design and genetic algorithm optimisation, for room temperature control. The performance is evaluated through application to a single zone dynamic building model. The proposed controller produces superior performance when compared to the NID controller optimised with a simple optimisation algorithm, and classical PID control commonly used in the buildings industry. An improved level of thermal comfort is achieved, due to fast and accurate tracking of the setpoints, and energy consumption is shown to be reduced, which in turn means carbon emissions are reduced.
