Efficient Universities Project: Green Building.
The University of Wisconsin Madison
The University of Wisconsin, which has 13 campuses spread around different locations and a total of 182,000 students enrolled, decided to begin the Green Building Project. This project aims to reduce its electricity consumption each year until 2015.
Due to their characteristics, these devices are ideally suited for controlling consumption and the main electrical variables: network analysis and monitoring, remote communications (RS-485), 480V power supply (essential in the American market) and reduced dimensions. Currently, the project requires that communications can be converted to the BACnet protocol, which was achieved by using external transducers.
Remarkable aspects/results Currently, the information network created by the university uses CVM data (Energy, KW demand, and currents):
