Open Web Services-Based Indoor Climate Control System, Phase III
This material is based upon work supported by the United States
Environmental Protection Agency under Award Number EPA 05 X-83232501-0.
The proposed effort addresses energy conservation in buildings while maintaining individualized comfort levels that improve employee efficiency and productivity. Our project will also address indoor air quality. The specific issues addressed by the proposed effort include:
1. System optimization and control technologies, using the expert system capabilities provided by the system. This technology provides groundwork for research in RfA topics such as energy cost and availability; air quality related to global climate change; and human health, performance and comfort. All these topics are central to the RfA IEQ methodology. The efforts build on the improvements of the open BAS implemented under our TAD 2007 efforts.
2. Whole-building-control integration and networks, using Internet Protocol (IP) technology that enables the design of systems to monitor individual responses to IEQ factors.
3. Diverse sensor technologies further extending the list of supported sensors. The effort benefits from the significant progress made in improving our IP-based sensor platform under TAD 2007 support.
