Intelligent energy management in residential buildings with a real-time control & wireless meter-recording system

  title={Intelligent energy management in residential buildings with a real-time control \& wireless meter-recording system},
  author={Nhat-Hai Nguyen and Quoc Tuan Tran},
Industrial evolution brings major new challenges due to increasing energy demands. This phenomenon encourages the improvement of control methodologies that reduce resource requirements. Lately, it has been observed that the building sector contributes considerably to final energy demand. Consequently, studies have been conducted on the technical systems and solutions applied in this sector to the intelligent management of energy. Our work focuses on the smart control of energy management… Expand

Mixed 0–1 sequential linear programming optimization of heat distribution in a district-heating system
Abstract A district-heating system transports heat from the heat plant by using primary pipe network, via substation, to secondary pipe network where heat is finally distributed to buildings. WhenExpand
Building-mix optimization in district cooling system implementation
A district-cooling system (DCS) has been applied in a number of countries where chilled water from a central plant is delivered through a distribution network to groups of buildings in an urbanExpand
Machine-to-machine technology gears up for growth
Machine-to-machine technology, based on the idea that a machine has more value when it is networked and that the network becomes more valuable as more machines are connected, is gearing up for exponential growth. Expand
