The subject of my thesis is the KNX planning of a medium sized office and medical station.
The KNX building management system is one of the most widely used standards, which main purpose is to reduce energy costs and enhance people’s comfort level.
It is widely popular thanks to the easy installation, scalability, convertibility and its capability to function properly with devices from different manufacturers.
The essense of the system is the unified and coordinated operation between different types and functions of devices.
The KNX system ensures that the lighting, heating, cooling, shadowing and system security can be controlled in a common bus.
In the introductory chapter of my thesis I described the definition of „intelligent buildings” and gave an overview on their advantages and disadvantages.
In the second chapter I defined the structure, addressing methods and bus access strategies of the KNX system. I also gave a broad overview on the design aspects of the building management system described in my thesis.
In the third chapter I specified which functions are worth implementing and which settings are worth using. I assessed the necessity of sensors and actors with regard to premises.
In the last part I described the required devices and their locations in the building. Then I designed the system topology and defined the physical and logical address needed for proper functioning. Due to the nature of my work, the greater part of my thesis consist of tables containing the address, location and function of the devices.
