Within the apartment, a wall mounted monitoring and control system is installed. It consists of a charge controller, a battery and a DC/AC converter to supply the A/C system with electricity.
The system performance is monitored via a Raspberry Pi.
The whole system is mounted on top and installed within a building in the Red Sea Resort El Gouna. It is used in a common building type which is present throughout the town where it is only varied in orientation and number of floor levels.
The electric consumption is monitored and a simulation model is available.
