How does the Cloud Energy Optimizer work?

In the technical area all your energy resources come together: heat pumps, solar collectors, heat exchangers and boilers. These are controlled by the Priva building management system. The Cloud Energy Optimizer features an intelligent self-learning algorithm. It predicts the energy demand in a building based on a local weather forecast 24 hours in advance. Not only on temperature but many more factors. For example wind speed and direction, solar radiation, rain, snow, clouds and fog. All of these affect how a building cools or heats.

 

When we know the heat or cold demand in a building for the near future, we can plan which energy resource needs to be deployed. The Cloud Energy Optimizer continuously ensures optimal distribution of sustainable energy.

 

Supply and demand is matched with the most current gas and electricity prices. Every hour a new prediction is made. Your building is continuously monitored. A small deviation? The system immediately takes action and makes the necessary adjustments. This way your comfort stays ensured.  

Selflearning algorithm

The smart energy system has a self-learning algorithm that is capable of re-calculating all factors every hour for the next 24 hours. This makes it possible to determine in advance the energy requirements. The program remembers the building conditions. So when there is more or less thermal load present.

 

In addition the Cloud Energy Optimizer offers dynamic control. The software will always maintain the comfort temperature, you have chosen.

Requirements?

A building contains at least the following components::

  • Building management system (PRIVA)
  • Heat pump(s) controlled by a building management system (BMS)
  • Zone control per space by a BMS (exceptions possible)
  • Internet connection in the BMS space
  • Power supply (230 volts)
  • Flow measurements
  • Incoming and outgoing temperature measurements

 

Other types of energy production are suitable, such as windmills. Or photovoltaic, also known as PV, most commonly used in solar panels. Another good example is thermal energy. Wondering if your building is suitable?
