This paper analyses an individual control system that accounts for human thermal adaptation.Although the conventional individual control system has been shown to provide a satisfactory level of thermal comfort, there are questions over its energy efficiency. It has therefore become urgent to develop a new individual control system that can ensure both energy saving and thermal comfort. In this study, the alleviation time is proposed as an energy-saving control strategy for the individual control system. In addition, the characteristics of unsteady human thermal adaptability were analyzed by subjective experiment and CFD simulation.
