LANS Informal Seminar
"Real-Time Optimization for Energy Management of Building Systems"

DATE: January 19, 2011

TIME: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00
SPEAKER: Victor Zavala, MCS
LOCATION: Bldg 240 Conference Center 1404-1405, Argonne National Laboratory

In this talk, we discuss strategies to minimize energy consumption in building systems by integrating sensor information, data-based models, model predictive control techniques. We discuss current challenges and implications of adopting energy management technologies at a large-scale. Finally, we report operational details, status, and expected savings of an energy management system recently deployed in the Theory and Computing Sciences building at Argonne.
