R&D PROJECT: AGRITECH
Qualitative Energy Control for Hydro systems
The main objective of the QUENCH project was the implementation of a
framework for the optimization of hydro-energy requirements for agriculture and public green management.
The framework designed and implemented by Abinsula and DIEE has available energy and water production/consumption data collected and acquired through local sensors (temperature/humidity) and remotely transmitted (through Internet) to relate them to environmental data such as weather forecasts and/or other parameters that can significantly change the result of the forecast.
The energy optimization frame work developed is the innovative element of the project and is a substantial improvement compared to existing systems used only by energy managers and water distributors.
Within this context it is possible to identify new methodologies and technical solutions. In particular, the following areas of innovation have been identified:
