Abstract: With the advent of increase in scientific gadgets and technological intervention in almost all the working sectors, utilization of energy has become a prime mandate in deciding the economy and growth. Moreover with urbanization at its peak, sophisticated building technology is also developing which is now one of the major consumers of the generated energy, especially for its Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems. This current scenario has urged to find a holistic way to improve energy management in buildings for a sustainable future resulting in Building Energy Management System (BEMS).This paper aims at developing an energy management platform for the building model; where-in a mechanical analogous thermal model of a building system is framed. Model Predictive Control (MPC) algorithm is employed with the integration of Building Management System (BMS), wherein the simulation was conducted to ensure the vigour of MPC to be employed as a supervisory control strategy. Safety aspects of this energy management methodology along with emerging trends is also been discussed in detail in this paper.
Keywords: BMS, Energy Management System, MPC, HVAC.
