Enthalpie Sensor for increased Energy Efficiency in Buildings


The aim of the project are novel flow sensors based on low-cost film technology that will, for the first time, allow the analysis and energy-economic optimization of air conditioning system operation. The sensors are connected via a modern wireless network, allowing a distributed data acquisition. Achievable performance and efficiency of the approach are verified with extensive simulation studies and experiments. ** The project E-Sense (Enthalpie Sensor for increased Energy Efficiency in Buildings, FFG 834481) is co-funded by the Klima und Energiefond/FFG withing the Neue Energien 2020 programme.
