Paper Abstract:      By applying agent technology, the intelligent building control system provides a practical application that can minimize energy consumption, while keeping a satisfying response to the building occupants’ comfort. Most of previous research in this field has proposed the controlling system that can adapt buildings not only to the changing environment to saving energy conditions but also to occupant’s well being and satisfaction can be achieved in order to optimize intelligent building’s performance. This article proposes an abstract extended-EDA (Epistemic-Deontic-Axiologic) model which is enhanced capability in order to make decision under norms: obligations, permissions and prohibitions. The model is represented in terms of an individual agent that is prepared for the multi-agent system of intelligent building control.
