Challenge@PoliTo_by Firms is an innovative teaching activity carried out at the Politecnico di Torino. It is an integral part of the PoliTo's strategy to promote innovative education and entrepreneurial culture. These activities are organized with external firms that provide a "challenge" coming from their real business. During the experience, up to 30 master’s students divided into teams work, compete and develop their own solutions. The Challenges are carried out in an experimental educational laboratory: the CLIK - Connection Lab & Innovation Kitchen, or a similar space. During the challenge phase at the CLIK lab, students can experiment and practice what they have learned during their university courses in an informal and multidisciplinary environment that promotes the spirit of creativity and collaboration. Challenge@PoliTo by Firms - Data-driven control strategies to enhance energy performance of HVAC systems in buildings THE TOPIC According to the IEA (International Energy Agency), Heating Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems account approximately for 50% of buildings energy demand. As a consequence, exploring energy management strategies to enhance the operation performance of HVAC systems can lead to significant benefits in terms of cost savings and greenhouse gas emissions reduction. In this context, the spread of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and IoT sensors is contributing to an unprecedent availability of long-term monitoring data related to energy performance and buildings indoor environmental quality. This vast amount of data can enable the development of calibrated building energy models and data-driven control strategies to simultaneously optimise both indoor environmental quality and energy demand, through multi-objectives optimisation and predictive data analytics. All data are exchanged with monitoring system using 5G (Industry 4.0). THE CHALLENGE The purpose of this challenge is to provide an analysis and a feasibility study of a data-driven advanced control system able to optimise the operation of HVAC systems in non-residential buildings. A critical investigation on the current trends of predictive control technologies and algorithms will be performed to define opportunities and potentialities, also in comparison to usual reactive controls. Different advanced control strategies will be designed based on the input variables collected by the monitoring system, the control outputs related to the available actuators and objective functions. The developed solutions will be tested in co-simulation environments combining various state-of-the-art software and tools. The most promising solutions will be identified according to both control performance with respect to the objectives and their applicability in a real world scenario.

The main goal is to involve students in learning initiatives capable of bridging the gap between the university's theory and the skills required by companies to work in a team. Entrepreneurial Culture: Promote the Entrepreneurial culture/behavior on the PoliTo Students. Multidisciplinary Teams: Collaborate in a complex and multidisciplinary context. Information research: Retrieval, Data collection and Utilization of information to support teamwork activities. Hard Skills: Put into practice what they have learned during their lectures to solve a real problem from partner firms. Soft Skills: Teamwork under conditions close to a real business environment, self-assessment and work organization. At the end of this activity, students will be more ready to work in a multidisciplinary team, a skill required by companies. They will be able to analyze industrial problems having a more comprehensive view of technical and market issues.

The Challenge is open to every master’s student of the Politecnico di Torino. No specific competencies are required to participate. To apply to this activity, the student has to upload: ● Covering Letter in English: self-presentation and motivations of interest in the presented Challenge; ● Curriculum Vitae. The students' selection will be based on Cover Letter, CV and multidisciplinary required by the Challenge. The Challenges are arranged in English.

The Challenges of the second didactic period last 14 weeks; they start in March and end in June 2023. During Challenges, students have to work in multidisciplinary teams supported by a group of tutors, coming from the PoliTo and external partners, with complementary backgrounds and competencies, under the lead of the Professors A. Capozzoli and E. Fabrizio (DENERG). Every team will self-organize its own working time and methodology. But, they will have to spend about 1,5 hours/week, supported by mentors, in the CLIK Lab, similar space or in remote, in addition to the joint alignment meetings (specified subsequently).

The event will take place at the Lab CLIK (Connection Lab and Innovation Kitchen) located in the central building of the Politecnico di Torino (Corso Duca degli Abruzzi, 24), in a similar space or in a remote way, with the following program: ● Kick-Off & Team Formation: the partner company and tutors will hold a session on the Challenge's issues. There will be the Team Formation and Team Building phases to the establishment of multidisciplinary teams. Joint meeting of 2 days. ● Problem Analysis and Idea Creation: two weeks in which the teams will analyze the problem in detail. A team of mentors will support the teams through weekly meetings. ● Idea Presentation – 1st Work Progress: each team will present (by a pitch) the problem and the proposed solution. Joint meeting of half-day. ● Prototyping and Development: teams will meet at CLIK (or similar space or remote way) weekly to meet with mentors who will support the project's development. 11 weeks of teamwork. ● Two Mid-Check Presentations – 2nd and 3rd Work Progress: two half-day meetings on work progress during the Prototyping and Development phase. ● Final Presentation: the teams will present their projects through the pitch of the idea. Joint meeting of half-day at the end of the 14th week. Every team will self-organize its own working timeframe and methodology, but they will have to spend about 1,5 hours/week, supported by mentors, in the CLIK Lab, in a similar space or remote. The Teams, during the Challenge, have to hand in the following deliverables: • Three ppts Work Progress: Pitches to explain achieved outcomes and next steps of the project, during work progress meetings; • One monthly report: a monthly report to describe achieved outcomes and next steps; • One ppt Final Presentation: final pitch, during the final presentation, to present the whole work; • One final report: final report about the whole work. A standard form will be provided. The explained structure is only an example; it could be modified during the Challenge.

Modalità di esame: Accertamento (esame senza voto);
Exam: Check;
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.
Exam: Check;
The Challenge is open to every master’s student of the Politecnico di Torino. The student can register individually or in a Team, in this second case, the multidisciplinarity of the team will be evaluated during the team formation activity. The curricular or extra-curricular credits will be awarded at the end of the Challenge and only if the student will have passed the course. The verification procedure is based on: • The Development of the project on an evaluation grid; • Quality of the presentation during the joint meetings; • Reports (monthly and final); • Self-evaluation of team members. This activity does not have a grade, only passed/not passed.
In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
