Intelligent Building Facilities

The laboratory conducts research related to building automation and control, energy analytics and facilities management systems. It has a range of standard instruments for teaching and research in the area of Intelligent Facilities. Customized control algorithms for building systems can be tested and their performance can be evaluated. Experimental setup for collecting real time energy data and analysing them is currently being installed

There is a demo kiosk and ten control systems for demonstrating the functioning of building automation and control. The demo kiosk illustrates the concept of integrated control with lighting, security, fire safety and Air-Conditioning and Mechanical Ventilation (ACMV) systems integrated into a Building Automation and Control network (BACNET) network.
