Mass consumption of energy is a big problem. Energy-saving activities which are a solution to this problem have been attracting a lot of attention. Nevertheless, in order to engage in thorough energy-saving activities, consumers need support; on the other hand, even with support, the effects seem to be only temporary. In this paper, to obtain a long-term effect, we focus on developing a method to raise consumers' awareness about energy-saving behavior. To this end, we designed an interface

In the era of air pollution and too large production of carbon dioxide, the emphasis is put on energy-saving construction.  One of the types of such a trend in the construction industry is passive construction .
This paper presents the analysis of a kindergarten building project to show whether an object can be described as a passive building. It also includes a kindergarten user satisfaction survey to confirm the thesis about the comfort of the use of energy-saving and

In recent years, the research and development of energy-saving control in air-condition system has become a hot spot with the advance of science and technology. In this paper, we proposed a fuzzy control mechanism for air-condition system, which combines the fuzzy control and multi-point sensing technology. When people feel cooler or hotter indoor, the air condition should promptly detect the temperature variance and switch the temperate between hot and cool smoothly. Therein an intelligent

alternative energy sources, it is hard not to underestimate projects that residential areas become a field of experimentation for large-scale solutions. The European Union and, in particular, the Western European countries, the Scandinavian countries give priority to energy saving and the use of alternative energy sources. Towards the Union’s sustainability policy, and undoubtedly this is energy generation, it is important to integrate the various areas of the Union and to align the levels of development

The energy efficiency increase problem for railway rolling stock pneumatic systems compressed air preparation is directly connected with its purification and drying technology choice. In the presented materials in the article, the authors find a solution to the problem based on realization analysis of different factors that affect compressed air quality, purification and drying technology choice, as well as based on energy efficiency analysis. To realize the energy-saving events at railway

approximation of these models makes it possible to estimate the EITTC of building room. Statistical computations confirmed these estimations by showing a strong correlation between the model's predicted EITTC and measured data. Thus the indoor thermal response under different indoor/outdoor conditions can be characterized. Finally, a model based adaptive heating Start/Shut control method is proposed and tested, with which, direct energy saving is achieved.

not included. The influence of the various longitudinal profiles of the road was taken into consideration and included in the model. Ways to use the results of monitoring road and traffic conditions arepresented. The method of non-linear programming is used to design the optimal vehicle control function and phase trajectory. The results are presented by improved typical driving cycles that present energy saving as a subject of choice at a specified schedule.

The aerothermic process is a pilot scale heating and ventilation system equipped with a heater grid and a centrifugal blower. The interaction between its main variables is considered as challenging for mono-variable controllers. A change in the ventilator speed affects the temperature behavior which represents a factor that must be managed for energy saving and the human welfare. This paper presents an experimental comparison between a Centralized Discrete State Space Model Predictive Control

A novel intelligent neural network control scheme which integrates the merits of fuzzy inference, neural network adaptivity and simple PID method is presented in this paper. This control method overcomes the defects existed in the traditional variable frequency induction motor driven hydraulic source, such as slow response, poor control precision, easy to overshoot. Permanent magnet synchronous motor driven constant pump hydraulic system is designed instead of common motor, energy saving, fast
