Virtual Closed Loop Control for Adaptive Energy Management in Retail BuildingsClosed Loop White Paper

Today’s buildings have the ability to virtually self regulate when configured correctly, saving energy, money and time. Many energy managers and engineers have been limited by the capabilities of the mostly open loop building automation systems. Paul walks you through the why, and the how, of applying a virtual closed loop system to your smart building.

Learn from the expert about:

  • The differences between Open Loop and Virtual Closed Loop control and the Negative Feedback Loop
  • The First Steps Toward Adaptive Energy Management
  • Reverting the roles: Zone Temperature as control input and Set Point as Control Output
  • The Practice of Adaptive Energy Management
  • Building as a Battery
