Abstract: For developing of energy consumption detection systems, the system integration becomes more and more difficult. The OPC (Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) for process control) technology is used to simplify the problem. The system integration can be improved largely and the efficiency can be decreased through the OPC standard interface. First, relevant knowledge about OPC technology is introduced in this paper, and then hardware and software realisation of the energy consumption detection system in Shenyang large-scale public buildings is discussed. By application of OPC technology, the system is simplified at system integration and information sharing and exchange on high-levels are realised.

Keywords: OPC; object linking and embedding; OLE; process control; energy consumption detection; hardware; software; client-server systems; public buildings; system integration; information sharing.
