This paper presents a distributed Model Predictive Control framework based on a primal decomposition and a bundle method to control the indoor environmental conditions in a multisource/multizone building. The control aims to minimize the total energy cost under restrictions on global power consumption and local constraints on comfort and saturations on actuators. Moreover, each power source is supposed to have a time varying tarification. The distributed Model Predictive Control algorithm is based on two layers: a zone layer which is responsible of local zone decisions and a coordination layer that handles decisions that go beyond the scope of the zone. Simulation results are finally provided for a three zones building with a local power production and a changing price grid power. A computational study is also provided in order to assess the effectiveness and the real-time implementability of the proposed control method.
