The present work focuses on investigating ways to enhance the energetic performance of buildings i.e. on proposing control strategies for managing energy in buildings. Therefore, control algorithms were tested using a prototype, composed of a building mock-up, a monitoring system and a data post-treatment software. The data acquisition system allows… (More)
Energy consumption in buildings is currently a real problem. That is why both assessment of energy performance and effective energy management are essential. In this context, the present paper focuses on developing a commercial monitoring station (BEMS) with the support of three industrial partners, Apex-BP Solar, Pyrescom and the "Centre Scientifique et… (More)
Polypropylene metallized capacitors are of general use in power electronics because of their reliability, their self healing capabilities, and their low price. Though the behavior of metallized coiled capacitors has been discussed, no work was done about stacked and flattened metallized capacitors. The purpose of this article is to propose a simple… (More)
This paper deals with the modelling of a multizone university building in the town of Perpignan, in southern France. An energy simulation software (EnergyPlus) is used to create a model of the building's thermal behaviour. The building has been instrumented and the comparison between simulated and measured temperatures validates the obtained model.
