Title: Volttron version 4

Abstract

VOLTTRON™ is an agent execution platform providing services to its agents that allow them to easily communicate with physical devices and other resources. VOLTTRON™ delivers an innovative distributed control and sensing software platform that supports modern control strategies, including agent-based and transaction-based controls. It enables mobile and stationary software agents to perform information gathering, processing, and control actions. VOLTTRON™ can independently manage a wide range of applications, such as HVAC systems, electric vehicles, distributed energy or entire building loads, leading to improved operational efficiency.

  • Buildings consume over 30% of the total primary energy consumed worldwide and contribute to a third of the world greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In the US, buildings consume over 40% of total energy and contribute to almost 38% in GHG emissions. In addition, buildings in the US consume over 75% of electricity generated. The need to mitigate climate change is driving efforts to make the US generation cleaner, which has given new impetus for improving the operating efficiency of buildings at scale and increasing the hosting capacity of distributed renewable generation. Because these renewable generation technologies are variable in nature,more » they create significant short- and long-term imbalance between supply and demand.« less
  • Soil Vapor Extraction (SVE) is a proven, in site corrective action technology that can remove Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and selected residual petroleum hydrocarbons from unsaturated soils. To assist regulators, investigators, and Underground Storage Tanks (UST) owners in evaluating whether SVE is an appropriate cleanup technology for use at UST sites, decision support software entitled HyperVentilate has been developed. HyperVentilate is an interactive, software guidance system for evaluating the feasibility of using SVE at a specific site based on site and contaminant characteristics. HyperVentilate is designed to: (1) identify the level of site data required to evaluate SVE systems, (2)more » evaluate soil permeability test results, (3) approximate the minimum number of extraction wells likely to be needed, and (4) provide a rough approximation of the system's desired and maximum removal rates.« less
