| 1C | Student Project Development based on Industry Oriented Learning: Design of a Sustainable Standalone House

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Sustainable buildings (or eco-buildings) should be equipped to harvest energy and water, and include systems that provide information about supply and usage of energy and water, so that solar energy harvest systems, wind turbines and rainwater collection system are specifically designed for such a sustainable building. The system design aims for a standalone house, which includes smart grid, electric vehicles, rainwater quality control, wind power hot water system control, solar hot water system control. Most of the design and prototyping developments suit students from undergraduate and trade programs. To enable post-graduate student projects, the research goal is set to use the built-in sensors e.g. temperature sensors, humility sensors, gas meter sensors, water meter sensors, electric power meter sensors to provide local information.  Geographic information and weather forecasting information is also collected. Finally a system controller is designed in order to optimize the use of the energy sources in different conditions e.g. where, when and cost.
