iLTC: Achieving Individual Comfort in Shared Spaces
Automatic control of HVAC and artificial lights has been one of the popular methods for achieving energy-efficient buildings. The current systems operate using fixed setpoint controls, which are usually based on a conservative approach. Moreover, the lighting systems require additional sensor deployment to cope up with continuous fluctuation of natural light intensity. In this work, we describe a smart system called indoor Lighting and Temperature Controller (iLTC), which eliminates the fixed set-points and requirement of additional light sensors. iLTC decides operating set-points more aggressively, which is energy optimal and tries to provide maximal user comfort to all the co-occupants in a shared space. The flexibility in choosing energy optimal set-points stems from the knowledge of comprehensive temperature and lighting comfort functions of individuals. To track the fluctuations in natural light intensity, we employ a smart estimation technique that requires light measurem...
