An energy management system (EMS) is a dedicated computer that can be programmed to control all of a building’s energy-related systems, including heating, cooling, ventilation, hot water, interior lighting, exterior lighting, on-site power generat

The subway station is a special location with very dense crowd. Because subway station situates in underground, people can not evacuate to ground easily. Once a fire occurs in subway station, it is very dangerous for people to stay in it.

Natural ventilation airflow rate is generally calculated using indoor and outdoor temperature difference without consideration of heat balance based on the vertical air temperature distribution in simple analytical method.
Song Pan, Harunori Yoshida, Mingjie Zheng
In this paper, three typical cities (Shanghai, Changsha and Chongqing) in the hot summer and cold winter climate zone of China was selected to study and the energy consumption of a model building in these three locations was simulated by eQuest so

This paper presents the development of a computer model of an academic building using the EnergyPlus program and its calibration with monitored data.
Danielle Monfet, Radu Zmeureanu, Roland Charneux and Nicolas Lemire
This paper presents an overview of crowd simulation models, their limitations, and an alternative agentbased approch.

The aim of this research work is to investigate the actual energy consumption in existing public buildings and to obtain the basic data for energy conservation of these buildings.
SiQiang Lu, Kazuo Emura, Norio Igawa, Hideyo Nimiya
Velocity fields on the platform area and flow rate of the smoke extraction system were experimentally measured under the different fan-operation modes in an actual subway station in Beijing.

VAV system is a very complicated one in airconditionging systems, thus automatic control become the key of such a system. As necessary components in automatic control system, sensor has failure risk.
Xiaowen Yi, Youming Chen
It is obvious that a building permanently exchanges with its nearby environment (mainly light, heat, sound, visual accessibility); these interactions are numerous and complex enough to require serious means of investigation, more especially as the

This paper demonstrates a simple and practical simulation-based approach for fast identification of appropriate building design strategies at the early stage of a design project.
Justin Spencer and Zhiqiang Zhai
This paper presents the features of Eco-Bat, a computer program developed to assess the environmental impacts of buildings, including construction materials and energy consumed, during its life cycle. The methodology used to evaluate environmental
