Short description of the project:
This project is prepared by Angela Popova, Angela Najdoska, Ilija Ivanovski, Vedran Simovski and Viktor Rudan under the supervision of prof. Zivko Kokolanski. These five students of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies took the first place prize in the ICAMES 2018 (International Cultural and Academic Meeting of Engineering Students) competition, organized by Bogazici University in Istanbul.
In this paper, the key focus is analyzing the data of energy consumption for non-residential buildings, as Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies (FEEIT) belongs in this category. To do so, the energy consumption for lighting, heating, air conditioning as well as the machines and appliances in the cabinets and laboratories needs to be studied precisely. After summing the results, it is clear that there is a lot to be done in order to achieve a greater level of energy efficiency of the faculty’s building. FEEIT’s spin-off company DTK Smart-tech has installed an electric energy management system which has been successfully working ever since, allowing a real-time view of the energy consumption of the building which enables spotting the critical consumers and time frames.
