Construction will be beginning very shortly in front of and within Building 90 for the new commercial buildings User Testbed Facility. A portion of the facility may become operational as early as the end of FY12, ready for experimental use in FY13 with the remainder complete later in FY13. This seminar is a key opportunity for EETD staff across all departments to learn about the functional capabilities of the facility, as well as the potentials for experimental use by EETD and our research partners. We encourage you to learn more about the capabilities of this facility and how it might be used in your research projects. The primary focus of the seminar will be to provide an overview of the broad research potentials (including systems, controls, tools, etc in both development and validation), testbed building systems, instrumentation, controls and data acquisition infrastructure and flexibility.
