This pattern, represents an episode. It is similarly learnt as weight adjustments on the connections between F2 layer and selected category of F3 layer. An episode can be recognized based on the selected node in F3 layer and can be reproduced by a readout process. The corresponding events can be read out from F2 to F1 layer. Thus encoding, storing and retrieval of events is performed based on computational principles and
Building Envelope plays a key role in determining the required energy for cooling, heating, and lighting of buildings. Proper building envelope design can strongly save energy and enhance indoor environment and occupants’ comfort. Energy modeling is a very powerful tool to simulate energy behavior in the buildings and the effect of the building design in the energy interaction with the surrounding. This allows designers to make alterations to the building design or operation while simultaneously monitoring the impact on system behavior and performance. Energy modeling of building envelope in residential buildings form architectural and structural perspectives can increase the energy efficiency of these buildings and reduce the
3.1 Heat Pump A heat pump as shown in Figure 3.1 is a device that provides heat energy from a source of heat to a destination called a "heat sink". Heat pumps are designed to move thermal energy opposite to the direction of spontaneous heat flow by absorbing heat from a cold space and releasing it to a warmer one. A heat pump uses some amount of external power to accomplish the work of transferring energy from the heat source to the heat sink. While air conditioners and freezers are familiar examples of heat pumps, the term "heat pump" is more general and applies to many HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) devices used for space heating or space cooling. When a heat pump is used for heating, it employs the same basic refrigeration-type cycle used by an air conditioner or a refrigerator, but in the opposite direction - releasing heat into the conditioned space rather than the surrounding environment.
Thermoelectric coolers operate by the Peltier effect (which also goes by name thermoelectric effect). The device has two sides, and when DC current flows through the device, it brings heat from one side to the other, so that one side gets cooler while the other gets hotter. The "hot" side is attached to a heat sink so that it remains at ambient temperature, while the cool side goes below room temperature. In some applications, multiple coolers can be cascaded together for lower temperature. 2 | Page Chapter-1.1: INTRODUCTION Thermoelectric cooling uses the Peltier effect to create a heat flux between the junction of
3 MATERIALS AND METHODOLOGY 3.0 INTRODUCTION Energy analysis of buildings helps to simulate the amount of energy used in a building. It is very important as it helps to discover and ascertain new ways of conserving energy and ensuring energy efficiency of building components. Building developers, construction engineers are increasingly interested in creating more energy efficient reason, and for this purpose whole building energy simulation programs are being used to determine strategies that save energy and are cost effective. The most common way available to perform this building energy analysis is to implement building information modelling(BIM). Building Information Modelling(BIM) consists of a digital representation of physical and functional
Energy efficiency: A person has to factor in the cycle and the stand-by energy loss during heating while calculating the energy efficiency of the system. Check if the particular model is able to recover back the energy it has spent on heating the
Improving the thermal efficiency of the engine leads to decrease in concentration of emissions in the exhaust. Nanoparticles improve the cooling rate when they are used along with coolant oil as base fluid in cooling systems. The rising demand for powerful and efficient engines call for the use of a coolant with better heat transfer characteristics. KEYWORDS: Nanofluids, Automobile radiator, Heat transfer Enhancement, Thermal conductivity.
Software agents play an important role as research objects in distributed AI(DAI) as well as in Agent Oriented Software Engineering(AOSE). Knowledge-based System(KBS) are being examine for Learning Software Organizations (LSO) as well as Knowledge Engineering(KE). Ambient intelligence(AmI) a new research area for distributed, non-intrusive, and intelligent software system both from the direction of how to build these system as well as how to designed the collaboration between system. Lastly computational intelligence(CI) plays an important role in research about software analysis or project management as well as knowledge discovery in machine learning or
1. Blue Apron plans to gain additional efficiencies by focusing on on-going operational improvement and efficiency that is built for differentiation and agility. This decision of Blue Apron is not only an efficiency improvement, but it is also an accounting decision because improving efficiency will lead to reduced cost to produce products. In working to improve their efficiencies Blue Apron is implementing the concepts of Strategic Cost Management. In applying this strategy, Blue Apron is evaluating their position, cost driver and value chain to blend these themes to maintain their long term competitive advantage.
In recent years, household consumption in developed countries has been taught to be a key contributing factor to global problems such as climate change, depletion of energy resources and biodiversity loss. Household consumption can be defined as the consumption of goods and services by households including the selection, purchase, use, maintenance, repair and disposal of any product or service OECD (2002). As society have become more aware of household consumption and the problems that occur as a result, Sustainable Consumption has attracted much attention and has become of great importance to society. Sustainable Consumption can be defined as attempts to reduce negative environmental and social impacts of consumption by consuming less or
