This report documents experiments carried out in FlexHouse at Risø DTU during February and March of 2009. FlexHouse is a part of the experimental distributed energy system, Syslab. The building is controlled by one central server, where among other things it is possible to record temperature in each room, and implement control of the installed electrical heaters. Furthermore a climate station is located right next to the building. The objective of the experiments is to provide data for models of the thermal dynamics of the building. The designs of the experiments is such that the conditions are during the experiments, from conditions optimized for modelling toward more common living conditions, i.e. from high variation of the indoor temperature, toward thermostatic temperature control and human activities in the building. In total five experiments have been successfully carried out, two with PRBS signals controlling the heaters, and three with thermostatic control.
