Use of Web Based Meters to Improve Energy Efficiency and Power Quality in Buildings

Abstract : During the work conducted, several buildings were analysed, in terms of energy efficiency and power quality. Two case studies are here presented: an educational building and a museum. Most of the studies were conducted recurring to traditional measurement equipment, forcing the person to travel to the site to install equipment and every time he wanted to collect data. But one of the case studies, the museum, comprised the development of an analyser (hardware and software) able to measure electric energy, temperature and humidity. This analyser has the capability to register values on a database available in the internet and issue warnings to the building manager. This allows real-time information, supporting some energy efficiency actions. The objective is to improve this model and expand its use for several buildings, providing savings in terms of time and other resources, taking advantage of cloud-based systems.
