Control of production and consumption of energy sources in internal energy systems

 Management of the internal energy systems is demanding because of its specificity and of safety and environmental requirements.. More recently, a need has emerged for management of such systems via the Internet, for networking of such systems in the local / regional centers, for management via mobile devices. There are also alternative energy sources, such as. Wind, biomass gasification, etc., which require implementation of quality algorithms for control of such devices. Therefore, the objectives of this project include:

a)  Development of complex systems of control that will make possible optimum local operation of selected devices and devices using alternative energy sources,

b) Development of expert systems for concentrated presentation of processes taking place in the energy system and to assist in predicting the consumption and in selection of optimal product,

c) Development of web and mobile management of energy devices,

d) Adoption and introduction of new methods of measurement of emissions, and

e) Adoption of engineering knowledge for the installation of complete energy systems

Intelligent buildings

In modern residential, commercial, storage and larger transport objects (e.g. ships) a number of different technologies are used (e.g., ventilation, lighting, security, multimedia technology ...)These systems are not or are poorly connected to each other, causing the users of such facilities difficulties in coordination, management and maintenance. The lack of standards is already a problem in one technology, but it is particularly critical to align the standards in different technologies. There is no flow of information between providers of different technologies, or it is at a minimum level. The lack of mutual consistency between the various technologies and their integration into a functional whole leads to deterioration of the economical operation and, indirectly, to environmentally unfriendly operating systems in such facilities.

Among the primary objectives of the projects in this field are an integrated approach to design and construction of intelligent buildings, guidelines for the development of products, and rules for standardization of these products or systems.

Optimisation of purification and treatment plants by introducing modern techniques of management and Web management

By joining the EU, Slovenia has adopted stricter legislation on the environment, due to which, substantial financial investment will be needed in the coming years to build and upgrade water purification facilities, including sewage and wastewater treatment plants. Modern treatment plants for wastewater treatment are technologically very complex and practically cannot operate without adequate computer systems for monitoring and control of the process and appropriate IT support. By measuring and appropriate evaluation of process variables and by using advanced algorithms in computer control system we can optimize the process of biological wastewater treatment and thereby improve the quality of treatment, while significantly reducing operating costs for the electricity consumed for pumping and ventilation and the use of chemicals.
