United States Patent Benosman et al. Patent No . : US 9 , 976 , 765 B2


A method controls an operation of an air - conditioning system generating airflow in a conditioned environment . The method updates a model of airflow dynamics connecting values of flow and temperature of air conditioned during the operation of the air - conditioning system . The model is updated interactively iteratively to reduce an error between values of the airflow determined according to the model and values of the airflow measured during the operation . Next , the method models the airflow using the updated model and controls the operation of the air - conditioning system using the model .
