Management of Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning System for SHIM Platform
MetadataShow full item record
Several approaches have been proposed according the concepts of smart grids and the smart home is one of them. A smart home can be defined as a system with network communication between all devices allowing the control, monitoring and remote access of the management system, progressing in a generalized way of all loads for an individual way, through individual management of loads. The paper proposes a Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) management methodology to be included in the Supervisor Control and Data Acquisition House Intelligent Management (SHIM). SHIM is a simulation platform developed and implemented in the Knowledge Engineering and Decision Support Research Center (GECAD) to support the control and management of appliances of end consumers. The main goal of the presented work is to develop a HVAC management methodology consisting in a priority system that classifies the importance of the HVAC in each instant. The priority classification depends directly on the difference between the room temperature and the user desired temperature, in order to take measures to optimize consumption during events with power consumption limitations maintaining user comfort.
