    A holistic approach to reducing the energy footprint of large commercial buildings is proposed. A detailed energy use breakdown within a modern building is presented, leading to the key insight that, in addition to the HVAC system, the energy used by miscellaneous plug loads which include IT equipment must also be addressed. An actuation framework is proposed to control plug-loads and the HVAC sys... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we proposed a design flow for BAC systems that enables integrating heterogeneous input models, conducts automatic design space exploration, and performs software synthesis on distributed platforms while guaranteeing correctness and reducing communication load. We believe these capabilities can enable the building designers to better adopt model-based design methodologies, and facili... View full abstract»

    For measurement of energy consumption to be truly useful for sustainability measures, the measurement of energy consumption in a building must be real-time, frequent, holistic, and most importantly disaggregated. Holistic implies that measurements must encompass all forms of energy use, both direct (electricity and natural gas) and indirect (water embedded energy), and being disaggregated requires...

    Adaptive test is a promising approach for test cost reduction. This article presents an adaptive test scheme for analog circuits that capitalizes on alternate test to achieve a low cost for the majority of fabricated devices. The small fraction of devices for which the alternate test decision may be prone to error are identified and further action is taken. View full abstract»
