Subject Strategies of energy optimization for an interactive monitoring architecture of uses in smart buildings
Abstract Nowadays intelligent buildings play an important role in the energy consumption control. The consideration of the users in the architectures of monitoring of these instrumented buildings currently leads to an inadequacy between the centralized functionalities of the systems designed to manage the energy automatically, and the real uses of the buildings. The main challenge is to be able to fully exploit data coming from the control systems of smart buildings to set up powerful but easy-to use management tools for these complex dynamic environments. The integration of users into the control loop of these buildings, both in terms of their feelings on the operating and their intentions, is now essential to allow the acceptance of these technologies in everyday life, especially in individual homes.
This thesis addresses the issue of the monitoring architecture of a building for housing aiming at reducing energy consumption while taking into account users and their uses. This architecture will be interactive with users, through well-fitted user-friendly interfaces, and will be based on a declarative approach to ease the development of the control applications.
Experiments will be performed locally on the experimental platform SoCQ4Home LIRIS (an instrumented building at INSA Lyon) and then on large-scale in real situation on a park of about a hundred individual housing renovated thanks to a partnership of the LCIS with the DREAL.
