ENERGY MEASUREMENT FOR CONSUMER LOADS IN BUILDINGS USING FIELD BUS SYSTEM FOR HOME AUTOMATION.
XX IMEKO World Congress 2012, Busan, Republic of Korea, September 2012.
Energy is one of the most important fundamentals of modern societies. Due to limited resources, the responsible use is becoming increasingly urgent. Particularly in buildings the energy consumption can be reduced significantly by applying intelligent solutions. One basis for these solutions, such as load management for optimized energy distribution, is the energy metering of components in electric systems. In this abstract, a field bus system is presented that, due to its local distribution, is suitable for energy consumption measurement of its individual components. After presenting the SmallCAN bus system and its concept, a summary of the mathematic algorithm and an example application will be shown to exemplify the functionality.
