Abstract [en]

In this study, the implementation of a wireless, lowpower, sensor network with IP capabilities in a district heating substation was evaluated. The aim of the study was to show that an open standard solution is technically feasible. Low-power wireless communication was established using IPv6/6LoWPAN on an IEEE 802.15.4 wireless network. An experimental district heating substation was equipped with sensor platforms in vital devices located within or near a district heating substation. As a result, all connected devices could obtain a direct internet connection.A system with open standards facilitates the introduction of new energy services such as individual measurements and improved space heating control. In this study, we found that resource-limited batterypowered devices possess a life expectancy of over 10 years, using small batteries while participating in IPv6 compatible communication.
