About the Living Lab:
Birkerød Skole is a new school, located in a building that has been completely renovates in 2013. The indoor climate of the school is closely monitored through indoor climate sensors in all of the school's classrooms located in the East-wing. In general, the school is well functioning, and the actual BMS system is upgraded with a smart box that can reduce inlet temperature to the radiators when a temperature-set-back is required, e.g. at night, weekends and during holidays. Solar radiation might negatively affect thermal comfort also in winter time.
Progress so far:
DTU Compute, together with CLIMIFY, has set up and tested connections to sensors, beacons and actuators including:
Through the feedback app FeedMe, occupants input will then enable the Human-in-the-Loop, occupant-centric model predictive control for each classroom.
