This thesis proposes a policy to control the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in an industrial building. The policy designed in this thesis aims to minimize the electricity cost of a building while maintaining human comfort. Occupancy prediction and building thermal dynamics are utilized in the policy. Because every building has a power constraint, the policy balances different rooms' electricity needs and electricity price to allocate AC unit power for each room. In particular, energy costs are saved by reducing the system's power for times when the occupancy is low. Human comfort is preserved by restricting the temperature …
