The idea behind the design:
In ADAPTICA Our perception, as consumers of energy we are aware of the benefits of energy conservation, and of the importance of having friendly energy management systems. As technologists we are knowledgeable of vast possibilities.
Current research on Energy Managment enable many interesting applications to provide optimal use of energy.
The key element of the energy managment process is the identification and analysis of energy conservation opportunities
Applications of Intelligent Energy Managment Systems
The relevant thermal and thermodynamic parameters which govern the energy consumption of the climate control system within an enclosure can be automatically determined through a parameter estimation system. The method of the parameter estimation assembly uses the continuous measurement of various air temperatures, air flows, and energy consumption rates. The method has the capability to adjust by indirectly learning the relevant thermal and thermodynamic characteristics of the building enclosure. Among the thermal parameters considered are the effective thermal capacitance of the internal walls and contents of the enclosure, the effective internal heat transfer conductance between the thermal capacitance and the air within the conditioned space, the effective external heat transfer conductance between the inside air and the outside air and the efficiency characteristics of the climate control system. The associated air distribution system is a function of its input energy rate.The method also includes a nonlinear efficiency model, using the aforementioned thermal parameters, which has the capability of predicting building air temperature, cool down and recovery, and the energy consumption of the climate control system as a function of outside air temperature and the user-specified occupancy comfort schedule.
