A Numerical Analysis Based Internet of Things (IOT) and Big Data Analytics to Minimize Energy Consumption in Smart Buildings


Keywords: Virtual Smart Grid, Modern Electricity Networks, Intelligently Manage, Generation Consumption, Stability, Electricity supply and demand, Packet Tracer


The new wave of performant technology devices generates massive amounts of data. These devices are used in cities, homes, buildings, companies, and more. One of the reasons for digitalizing their tasks is that over the past few years, there has been an interest in reducing carbon emissions and increasing energy efficiency to create a friendly ecosystem and protect nature. One of which granted the explosion of data. After deploying these new devices, a significant increase in the use of the other face of energy to implement the components of the new devices was noticed. Above all, the interconnection of these intelligent devices is the central concept of the Internet of Things (IoT). This domain has widened the possibilities for the interconnection of building management systems (also named Smart Grids) and devices for better energy management. Furthermore, its potential is realized only after organizing and analyzing a large amount of data. Real-time management and maintenance of big data are critical to improving energy management in buildings. The benefits of big data analytics go beyond savings on electricity bills. It can provide comfort for building users and extend the life of building equipment, enhancing the value of commercial buildings. Intelligent interconnection of a building’s technical installations (lighting, heating, hot water, photovoltaic installations, etc.) not only allows for connected management of this equipment but also meets high energy efficiency criteria that indicate an increase in comfort and energy savings. With building automation, the technical installations of a building interact optimally. In this article, we will simulate an intelligent building based on the Cisco packet tracer software. To better manage the energy consumption of our project, we will focus on the processing of data in real-time, especially since we will have a massive amount of data generated by the sensors.
