Intelligent buildings ventilation control is a challenging automation problem with objectives that rise several research problems of immediate actuality, such as the wireless automation and the control of complex interconnected subsystems. The system considered is composed of ventilated rooms, fans, plenums and a wireless network. The complexity arises from the different physical properties - and associated dynamics - of the subsystems. In a broader picture, all these engineering problems imply to deal with fluid models and the connection of different subsystems. Global control strategies are of prime importance to deal with such problems.
