The Center for Control, Dynamical Systems, and Computation Spring Seminars

Summary: The Center for Control, Dynamical Systems, and Computation
Spring Seminars
Building Automation R&D Needs in System
Engineering for Integrated Buildings
Dr. Clas Jacobson
Director of the Systems Department
United Technologies Research Center
Friday, April 28th, 2006 4:00 - 5:00 PM Engineering II Pavilion
This talk presents some current challenges in "integrated buildings" with attention to dynamics, controls and
embedded systems. Integrated buildings being defined as the increase in functionality for energy efficiency,
comfort and safety, are being driven by numerous forces both from the market as well as national needs. The
technology challenges associated with providing the functionality in a reliable and cost effective manner are
systems issues and can be characterized along the dimensions of (1) integration, (2) data aggregation and
(3) contextual information. This talk presents these challenges and characterizes the R&D needs in the areas
of (1) design flows and tool chains with particular emphases on distributed embedded systems, (2) multiscale
modeling and dynamical analysis and (3) uncertainty analysis for networked systems.
