Local Area Networks - Applications to Energy Management
MetadataShow full item record
One of the newest advances in computer technology is the Local Area Network. Its many applications in the office environment are well publicized. This paper describes the application of Local Area Networks to another environment: Energy Management systems. The idea of the Local Area Network is described, and it is compared to the distributed processing technique, one that is more commonly used in energy management systems. The two techniques are compared by applying each to common examples, and pros and cons are discussed. Examples of energy management systems using the Local Area Network technique are then presented.
