Emerging smart buildings, such as the NASA Sustainability Base (SB), have a broad range of energyrelated systems, including systems for heating and cooling. While the innovative technologies found in SB and similar smart buildings have the potential to increase the usage of renewable energy, they also add substantial technical complexity. Consequently,(More)
Modeling occupant behavior in smart buildings to reduce energy usage in a more accurate fashion has garnered much recent attention in the literature. Predicting occupant comfort in buildings is a related and challenging problem. In some smart buildings, such as NASA AMES Sustainability Base, there are discrepancies between occupants’ actual thermal(More)
Smart power grids have been introduced in many developed countries and facilitate more efficient and economical utilization of generated power. The components of such a grid are usually remotely monitored and selected components are controlled either manually or through advanced software programs. However, many countries still rely on an Automated Meter(More)
Recently there has been significant research on power generation, distribution and transmission efficiency especially in the case of renewable resources. The main objective is reduction of energy losses and this requires improvements on data acquisition and analysis. In this paper we address these concerns by using consumers’ electrical smart meter readings(More)
