Design and Implementation of CMAC-PMV Thermal Comfort Controller Based on a ZigBee Communication

PP: 783-792
Neng-Sheng Pai, Jian-Min Chen,
Combining transmission of the indoor environmental parameter, e.g. temperature, humidity, air velocity to a PC through a ZigBee module, this work integrates wireless transmission technique with sensors to build a smart controller for home electronics. With Visual Basic .NET 2008 as the software development tool, developed on the basis of a cerebellar model articulation controller (CMAC), a predicted mean vote (PMV) is thus yielded according to all the data sensed. Subsequently, a fuzzy logic controller is introduced into an air conditioning system in such a way that a comfortable living ambiance is achieved and maintained as well effectively in terms of energy saving concern. In the end, using a wireless local area network (WLAN), a smart portable device is made applicable to a long distance monitoring and control system over the air conditioner. Furthermore, the time complexity required in a conventional PMV is hence improved as a consequence of the powerful CMAC learning ability.
