Many campus energy systems are a conglomeration of assets (equipment) that are operated by control systems that are programed for safe operations. The equipment is dispatched based on native knowledge. The application of Artificial Intelligence into an overall control scheme will allow for the economic optimization of assets while maintaining reliability standards set by operators. The system allows for the optimal operation of prime movers, boilers, chillers, thermal & energy storage, and photo voltaic components based on AI that can predict future campus demands and dispatch equipment and storage to optimally meet the demands of tomorrow, today.
