BUiD’s academic staff and alumna publish their research in the Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science

Dr Basim Touqan, Lecturer at the faculty of Engineering and IT, Professor Alaa Ameer, Head of Engineering Management, and Dr Muna Salameh, BUiD’s Aluma, published their research, ‘HVAC multivariable system modelling and control’ in in the Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science.

The researchers used a multivariable HVAC mathematical model selected for their work, mainly a hybrid distributed-lumped parameters model. As the transfer function matrix was not established in the selected HVAC model, it was exclusively developed in their study, using the time domain graphical responses of the chosen model. Based on the developed transfer function matrix, a conceptual two-step approach was followed to control HVAC model performance.
