LowEnergyBuildingServices - Highly efficient presence detectors and end user technologies

Highly energy efficient presence detectors, control systems for sun shades etc. are de facto not available on the market. Regarding plus-energy office buildings, the minimisation of the power consumption of these components is a central criterion to achieve the "plus" part in terms of the energy of the building. A highly energy efficient presence detector was successfully sketched in this project, which undercuts the intended standby consumption of 0,05 W.

lowTEMP4districtheat - Reduction of the system parameters of heating networks for the integration of renewable heat sources using soft sensors

Analysis of the use of soft sensors in addition to selective real measurements for the complete recording of real-time parameters of heating networks. The data obtained enable detailed grid simulations with low computing power requirements and form the basis of a strategy for lowering the grid temperatures and feeding in decentrally generated heat.

LTS Flywheel - Long Term Storage-Flywheel: New approaches for increasing the economically usable storage time and safety

Development of the fundamentals for a Long Term Storage (LTS)-flywheel for decentralized storage of electrical energy (e.g. from wind or PV power plants), with a significant increase in storage time (goal: 12 hours) and safety, featuring low system costs. Therefore, the LTS-Flywheel is an essential contribution to the building of the future.

Manage_GeoCity - Development of a method for the coordinated management of geothermal energy in urban areas

Based on the urban region Graz a method had been developed for the coordinated use and management of shallow geothermal energy for heating and cooling as well as seasonal heat storage in urban regions. Ground water flow, different geologic conditions, heating and cooling demand, heat input from solar collectors and industrial waste heat and the possibilities of seasonal heat storage in the subsurface were considered.

metaTGA - Metadata and process models for open BIM in building service engineering

The objective of this research project is to design a methodology for developing data and process models and to apply them by modelling selected MEP systems. A particular but not exclusive focus is put on the renewable heating technologies, e.g. heat pumps, solar heat and biomass as well as ventilation systems. The data and process models developed in this research project will be scientifically evaluated in two pilot projects. The models, the approaches taken during development and the project team’s experiences with the pilot application of the models will be disseminated openly.

Model Predictive Control of Thermally Active Building Systems and Monitoring of two Test-Boxes

A robust, predictive controller which utilises weather forecast data to control thermally active building systems had been designed, researched and assessed in terms of energy efficiency and comfort compared to standard controllers, especially for cooling purposes. Simulations and real measurements using two "Test-Boxes" with thermally active building systems which are constructed and built for this purpose were used to analyse energy efficiency and comfort. Low complexity and transparency of methods and solutions should allow for transferability of all results to guarantee maximum usability for similar applications.
