The primary objectives of this project are to demonstrate 1 energy efficiency gains achievable in small- to medium-sized buildings with MPC-based whole-building optimal control and 2 reduction in first costs achievable with a wireless sensor network WSN-based building heating, ventilation and air conditioning HVAC control system compared to a conventional wired system. The second objective is key because first cost is a barrier to wider application of advanced HVAC control and 70 of the first cost is attributed to installation wiring and commissioning.
