In ACEEE Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Buildings, August 1998.
We describe the design, development and initial operation of a prototype system which permits remote monitoring of multiple heterogeneous cornmerci,al buildings across the Internet from a single control center. Our system is distinguished by its ability to interface to multiple heterogeneous legacy building Energy Management Control Systems (EMCSs), its use of the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) standard communication protocols, development of a standardized naming system for monitoring points, the use of a relational DELMS to store time series data, automatic unit conversion, and a scripted time series visualization system. We discuss design decisions related to the selection of CORBA and a relational DBMS implementation. We also discuss related standards efforts such as BACnet and the International Alliance for Interoperability. We conclude with discussions of the HVAC systelm data and future work.
