Book Description

This book explains the concept of data centers, including data collection, public parking systems, smart metering, and sanitizer dispensers. Electric urban transport systems and effective electric distribution in smart cities are discussed as well. The extensive role of power electronics in smart building applications, such as electric vehicles, rooftop terracing, and renewable energy integration, is included. Case studies on automation in smart homes and commercial and official buildings are elaborated. This book describes the complete implication of smart buildings via industrial, commercial, and community platforms.


  • Systematically defines energy-efficient buildings employing power consumption optimization techniques with the inclusion of renewable energy sources
  • Covers data centers and cybersecurity with excellent data storage features for smart buildings
  • Includes systematic and detailed strategies for building air-conditioning and lighting
  • Details smart building security propulsion

This book is aimed at graduate students, researchers, and professionals in building systems engineering, architectural engineering, and electrical engineering.
