Commercial Building Automation Boosts Energy Efficiency
Commercial Building Automation Boosts Energy Efficiency
One of the challenges to building automation is the multitude of non-interoperable communications protocols that have evolved over the years. Buildings have several islands of automation. Bridging the islands of different automation without losing the considerable investment in each specialized control network is the main focus in this solution.
Energy Saving & Power Monitoring System
Energy Saving & Power Monitoring System
Recently a university in Taiwan was experiencing dramatic power usage increases due to its growing number of campus buildings and students. Aiming to analyze their power consumption and increase their power efficiency across 52 buildings, the university wanted to build a power management system utilizing web-based hardware and software. With these goals in mind, they contacted Advantech to help them develop their system and provide them with the means to save energy in the years to come.

Building Energy Management System (BEMS)
Building Energy Management System (BEMS)
Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS) are computer-based systems that help to manage, control and monitor building technical services (HVAC, lighting etc.) and the energy consumption of devices used by the building. They provide the information and the tools that building managers need both to understand the energy usage of their buildings and to control and improve their buildings’ energy performance.HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) is the technology of indoor environmental control. Its goal is to manage air temperature, humidity and quality to meet the needs of both people and industrial processes. With low cost sensors, wireless connectivity and more powerful data processors, HVAC companies are now able to collect real time performance data and monitor the condition of their equipment. Remote monitoring solutions can monitor hard to reach areas and sites in order to alert staff to a breakage and heat or water damage in a cable. IoT can help the HVAC industry improve overall equipment effectiveness and save money by minimising equipment failure and optimizing energy usage and performance levels. Direct digital control: Central controllers and most terminal unit controllers are programmable, meaning the direct digital control program code may be customized for the intended use. The program features include time schedules, setpoints, controllers, logic, timers, trend logs, and alarms. The unit controllers typically have analog and digital inputs that allow measurement of the variable (temperature, humidity, or pressure) and analog and digital outputs for control of the transport medium (hot/cold water and/or steam). Digital inputs are typically (dry) contacts from a control device, and analog inputs are typically a voltage or current measurement from a variable (temperature, humidity, velocity, or pressure) sensing device. Digital outputs are typically relay contacts used to start and stop equipment, and analog outputs are typically voltage or current signals to control the movement of the medium (air/water/steam) control devices such as valves, dampers, and motors. Groups of DDC controllers, networked or not, form a layer of system themselves. This "subsystem" is vital to the performance and basic operation of the overall HVAC system. The DDC system is the "brain" of the HVAC system. It dictates the position of every damper and valve in a system. It determines which fans, pumps, and chiller run and at what speed or capacity. With this configurable intelligency in this "brain", we are moving to the concept of building automation.  
Indoor Positioning System (IPS)
Indoor Positioning System (IPS)
Indoor Positioning Systems (IPS) are used to locate persons or objects inside buildings, as opposed to GPS which works outdoors. IPSs impact asset monitoring and automation at the enterprise level. The technology is expected to bring in integration capabilities of analytical software tools with the existing maps and navigation software.
Structural Health Monitoring (SHM)
Structural Health Monitoring (SHM)
Structural health monitoring is a tool used to ensure the safety and soundness of structures. Structural health monitoring uses an assortment of sensors to collect and analyze data pertaining to any damage or deterioration that a structure may receive over the course of its life. The data that structural health monitoring systems acquire can help its users avoid structural failures.Numerous structural health monitoring systems are available. They differ by cost, quality, purpose and technology. They use many types of structural health monitoring devices and software systems to analyze the data retrieved from the devices. The type of structural health monitoring system that should be used is specific to the structure or structures being monitored.Structural health monitoring is used on structures such as bridges, skyscrapers, stadiums, wind turbines, ships, airplanes and many others.
