ASO (Automated System Optimization)
Automated System Optimization (ASO) tools are a subset of EMIS focused on continuous controls optimization. ASO tools dynamically modify building automation system control settings to optimize HVAC system energy usage while maintaining occupant comfort. Two-way communication with the BAS is the distinguishing feature of ASO solutions. These tools both read data from the BAS and write analytically based optimal setpoints back to the BAS, based on data such as measured indoor, outdoor, and energy price conditions.
