Study on PMV Index Forecasting Method Based on Fuzzy C-Means Clustering
In order to improve the forecasting accuracy of indoor thermal comfort, the basic principle of fuzzy c-means clustering algorithm (FCM) and support vector machines (SVM) is analyzed. A kind of SVM forecasting method based on FCM data preprocess is proposed in this paper. The large data sets can be divided into multiple mixed groups and each group is represented by a single regression model using the proposed method. The support vector machines based on fuzzy c-means clustering algorithm (FCM+SVM) and the BP neural network based on fuzzy c-means clustering algorithm (FCM+BPNN) are respectively applied to forecast PMV index. The experimental results demonstrate that the FCM+SVM method has better forecasting accuracy compared with FCM+BPNN method.
