We are working on a low cost Embedded Intelligent controller
for our systems. The aim will be to use web based information to
optimise the performance of the systems, to ensure the thermal
storage is charged by the correct ratio of solar energy to the low
tariff heat pump.
function will be to control the individual heat emitters to the
locality of the building occupants.
the historical data collected from the system will provide graphical
information to the occupant via a Browser, plus the ability of
changing the set-points remotely.
Control board we are using.
technology we feel fits well with our vision for a networked
building, and the applications that are available from this.
NetGreen Solar is working with the team from Net Green
Developments Lda to make our controller a bolt-on application of
an overall IP solution. more>
UK Market - Product in development
We have a potential Solution in development for the UK market which will use knowledge we gain from our usage of Heat Pumps in conjunction with Solar thermal energy. The basis of the development is focused on the direct relationship between efficiency of the Heat Pump (COP) and the temperature of the source (In heating mode - source being the Evaporator).
Low energy hot water heating from a Heat Pump is possible when you combine waste heat recovery from a building (Ventilation for example), potential solar thermal energy storage, renewable electrical energy (from PV or small wind turbine for example) and intelligent controls.
