IEEE 16th International Conference on Environment and Electrical Engineering (EEEIC), Florence, Italy, 6 - 10 June 2016
In this work, a smart Air Conditioner scheme is proposed and its adaptation to a Smart Home system is presented. Firstly, working principles of conventional Air Conditioner and the proposed smart Air Conditioner are explained and compared. Then, Petri net model of the smart Air Conditioner is developed in order to enable a good general view of the operation of the smart-Air Conditioner and its adaptation to Smart Home. Moreover, for monitoring and controlling the smart Air Conditioner, a program is prepared by using Keysight VEE 9.3 software. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed scheme provides a significant savings in electricity bills as well as improving user comfort.
