Executive summary     Deliverables     Simulation Results     Experimental Results     Plan For Future Work


As smart power grids become more prevalent and data on smart building energy usage becomes more availabe, the opportunity for energy efficency increases drastically. Data collected from smart buildings allow a nerual network to control the workings of a building in an efficient manner. We propose to expand on the loads that can be controlled through BEMOSS by enabling control of a DC motor. Building energy management open source software (BEMOSS) is an internet of things (IoT) software that was developed at Virginia Tech. This proposed control of a DC motor through an IoT software presents the opportunity to close blinds, open barriers, and move objects throughout the building. The ability to open and close blinds building wide permits the ability to regulate the interior temperature of a building with a considerably lower power consuption.
