Content Details:

This research seminar presents a research project that aims to develop the Internet of Things (IoT)-based multi-function smart window for zero energy building (ZEB). This smart-product, integrating the solar photovoltaic (PV) blind with ventilation system, is an innovative solution for generating electricity from solar energy while improving indoor environmental quality. This research project was funded by the South Korean government from 2016 to 2019, and developed the following three technologies: (i) Optimal design and manufacturing technology for solar PV blind and ventilation system; (ii) Real-time monitoring and evaluation technology of solar PV blind electricity generation and indoor environmental quality using the sensor network; and (iii) Automatic control technology for maximizing solar PV blind electricity generation and optimizing indoor environmental quality. Through the development of above technologies, the prototypes for the multi-function smart window, applying various sensors, printed circuit boards (PCB), controllers, and the NI LabVIEW software program, have evolved over time applying different types of PV cells and ventilation systems.
