heal.abstract
The current research is related to the design of a system that could provide efficient energy management and power distribution in a building in real conditions. In particular, the case of the International Hellenic University was examined and the Smart IHU platform was used for the purposes of this dissertation. The Smart IHU platform consists of a sensor network responsible for measurements regarding temperature levels, luminance values, humidity and CO2. In the Smart IHU platform an automated demand response system was integrated, the openADR. Automated demand response systems secure a communication between the utilities or ISO and the end-users, so that the consumed energy loads and the respective costs can be controlled. The most significant characteristic of the openADR protocol is the standard format of the messages that are sent between the two sides facilitating thus the communication and the future development of the system. An algorithm was designed based on the Smart IHU platform. This algorithm possesses three main parts: a) the control of the sensors in the building, b) the collection of the available data and c) the integration of the openADR standard. The first part is related to the connection of the created application with the sensor network of the Smart IHU platform. The second part was designed to retrieve the information recorded by sensors when the measurements were updated. The last part comprised the implementation of the openADR standard and offered the possibility to initialize an automated demand response event for the reduction of the consumed power loads. For the completion of the research a series of testings of the application were realized. In the framework of this research, I would like to thank my thesis supervisor George Koutitas for his guidance and constructive discussions, and the main researcher of the Smart IHU project Thanos G. Stavropoulos for his technical support and assistance for the problems that were faced during the implementation with the Smart IHU platform.
