Course Description:
Energy Management and Energy Efficiency of Buildings - 5EUS5GEB Goals The purpose of this Course Unit is to be able to design an energy management system for a building. This requires: to understand the physical phenomena and be able to model the static and dynamic behaviour of a building system for its energy management to be able to model the internal inflows and solar gains to be able to model the impact of the occupation and the comfort felt by customers to ba able to reset the parameters of a building model based on a measurement campaign to know the technology Building Management to be able to design a heuristic energy management system to be able to design an approach based on optimization to discover software tools for building energy management These skills are developed around the PREDIS Monitoring Smart Home platform that acts as a guideline for the different subjects. The Smart Grid and Building students will follow, instead of Part 1 a course about Urban energetic. Knowledge about the elements of the European energy strategy adapted to the urban scale To provide students the tools to: • ensure a better quality of life for residents through a high quality comfort inside buildings, • manage the energy of a building; improve energy efficiency of buildings, towards zero energy building Contact Stephane PLOIX, Stephane PLOIX Content The scientific topics covered in this Course Unit are organized around the three means of control of energy consumption in buildings: energy Sobriety in winter and summer; Development and integration of RES and ABOUT US STUDIES RESEARCH INTERNATIONAL COMPANIES STUDENT LIFE Number of hours Lectures : 30.0 Laboratory works : 30.0 ECTS : 5.0 Page 1 Integration built systems that produce electricity by the photovoltaic process. The course on energy management in buildings is divided into 16 sessions divided into two major parts: Part 1: modeling for energy management o S01-introduction: key figures and issues in the field of energy management (R2012, DPE-3CL ...) Calculation of thermal S02-03 Losses: reminders on regulatory thermal steady-state modeling, link to the RT2012 o S04-05 thermal waste of PREDIS / MHI: calculation of regulatory static thermal model for the platform PREDIS-MHI [evaluated] o S06 inertia: reminders of dynamic thermal modeling and modeling level required for energy management o S07 dynamics of PREDIS / MHI: calculating a dynamic thermal model for the platform PREDIS-MHI [evaluated] o S08 gains and comfort: representation of internal gains, solar gains, the air quality and occupant comfort Part 2: Implementing energy management o S09 parameter adjustments' of building models: implementation of "black boxes" parametric estimation techniques and highlighting the limitations and implementation of an approach exploiting the thermal calculations (knowledge model) o S10-11 adjustment of the PREDIS / MHI model: application of a "gray box" parametric estimation approach to PREDIS / HMI platform [evaluated] o S12 technologies for the control of building systems: presenting traditional and innovative technologies for energy management o S13-15 energy management and optimization: empirical design energy management strategy for PREDIS / MHI and performance evaluation obtained and compared with approaches based on optimization techniques (interior point, simulated annealing and MILP) [evaluated] o S16 applications with Vesta-System Overview of software tools for building energy management with cases of application Part 3 : The content of the Urban Energetic (Smart Grid and Building students) is about Heat generation: high performance technologies (cogeneration and trigeneration). Distribution of hot water and heating systems Cooling systems Air treatment, air conditioning Lighting in a building Zero energy building Prerequisites Course Unit of monophasic thermohydraulic (1st year of Ense3) Course Unit of heat and mass transfers (SEM 2nd year) Basis in numerical calculations (Matlab, Python,) Basis in Automatic control and regulations Page 2 × Tests Semester 3 - The exam is given in english only Semester 5 - The exam is given in english only Exam and reports The grades for the Smart Grid and Building students are obtained with the following formula: Grade = continuous assessment 50% from the project with Stephane Ploix + 50% from the urban energetic course (report and defense) Additional Information Semester 3 - This course is given in english only Semester 5 - This course is given in english only Course list Curriculum->Master inter SGB->Semester 3 Curriculum->->Semester 5 Curriculum->Engineer ME->Semester 5 Curriculum->Engineer SEM->Semester 5 Curriculum->ENTECH->Semester 5 VERSION FRANÇAISE Voir la version française de cette page Ecole Nationale Supérieure de l'Energie, l'Eau et l'Environnement 21 avenue des Martyrs CS 90624 38031 GRENOBLE CEDEX 1 To improve the quality of this site and the service rendered to the user, we use cookies audience measurement.

Evaluation Date:
November 3, 2017
The prerequisite for this class is ME 436. The student must take ME 436 at ISU PRIOR to taking this class at Grenoble INP. This course will not come back as a mechanical engineering technical elective if the student has not taken ME 436 at ISU before taking this class at Grenoble INP.
