Hi Osman

Since you are in final year I assume you know heating, ventilation and air conditioning field inside out. Rather than asking other people for project ideas best thing to do would be ( in my mind) to identify common issues, next technology leap etc by some common research.

  1. Search for common issues these units are having to identify a a problem
  2. Talk to few suppliers, industrial end users, installing agents etc to identify a common problems
  3. Visit unit manufacturers website and read their white papers to identify what they are looking at for the next generation technology leap

so on...

This way you will find a niche idea or issue to research and do your project. This also will help you to be at the forefront of what the current technology trend. In case if you are successful at solving an issue to come up with a new idea you could start a business providing a solution.

good luck

This is too late for Osman, but perhaps another student will benefit. I can think of a practical example. There is a company here where I live that tests household appliances for such things as Energy Star ratings. They have several climate controlled rooms where they test ovens, refrigerators, etc. Not only must the temperature be controlled, but also the moisture. Sometimes they must cool the air to condense moisture and then heat it back up. Sometimes they must simply cool or heat the air. They have several HVAC components to take care of this as well as a control system. The control system is interesting and something worthy of investigation and simulation, which can even be accomplished in an Excel spreadsheet. You can step through time, leaking or adding heat and/or moisture from the outdoors and trying to control the outcome. You normally cool below the target temperature and then wait for the room to warm up (heat added to the room by the refrigerator or stove and also possibly surroundings). What duration and "over-shoot" yields the minimum fluctuations without cycling the HVAC every two minutes unnecessarily. Here's a spreadsheet to get you started.
