Michael C. Lorek received the B.S. degree from Ohio University in Electrical Engineering in 2009. He is currently pursuing the Ph.D. degree in EECS at UC Berkeley under Prof. Kristofer S.J. Pister. He has held various positions outside of academia, including internships at Advanced Micro Devices in 2007 and 2008, Qualcomm in 2011 and 2012, and a research fellowship at NIST in 2009. His current research interests include on-chip magnetic field sensing, energy harvesting interface circuits, and sensor node component integration.
Standard CMOS-Based, Fully Integrated, Stick-On Electricity Meters for Building Sub-Metering [BPN705]
We propose the development and testing of a system of technologies to minimize the installed cost of electricity sub-metering in buildings. This system utilizes non-contact, self-calibrating voltage and current sensors and wireless communication to eliminate the need for installation by an electrician, installation of conduit and enclosures, and installation of wired communication infrastructure. Electricity sub-metering is a critical component for continuous commissioning, fault detection and diagnosis, demand response, and other energy efficiency opportunities.
