Flexible Research Platforms

Flexible Research Platform (FRP) is a two-story multi-zone unoccupied research apparatus that can be used to physically simulate light commercial buildings common in the United States' existing building stock. The FRP can accurately monitor and evaluate various configurations of envelope systems and HVAC systems with system controls, occupant schedules, and plug loads. It allows users to apply desired test scenarios and settings, and can also provide data collected during testing from more than 500 sensors.
