MARCHANTE GONZALEZ, Greta  y  GONZALEZ SANTOS, Ana Isabel. Thermal comfort and discomfort evaluation. EAC [online]. 2020, vol.41, n.3, pp.21-40.  Epub 01-Dic-2020. ISSN 1815-5928.

The main internationaly comfort, thermal stress and comfort zones models that have been developed are described in this work. These models are of interest as a theoretical reference for the development and understanding of a broader comfort zone model. In each one, the influence of factors and parameters, both environmental and personal, that affect the comfortable or not perception of the thermal environment is analyzed, emphasizing for each model its corresponding discomfort model. Visual informatic application was developed on Matlab® that grouped the different models studied. The application allowed comparisons to be made between them and to demonstrate that the single-variable control, systesms carried out in most buildings to guarantee comfort, giving importance only to the temperature variable, limit the influence of other variables that have an impact on customers’satisfaction. The pressure, relative humidity, and air speed also affects the comfort and energy consumption in a certain way in the building sector.

Palabras clave : thermal comfort; thermal discomfort; factors; parameters; energy consumption.
