What can it learn? It isn't monitoring the only thing that really matters, I,E., temperatures. What then is left for it to "learn"? Only pressure remains. They can and do maintain constant pressure. As system friction head decreases with the opening of more and more zone valves, they can speed up to restore pressure to a constant level. There is no learning required in this. And in the end it is not much different from the end users perspective than the far older method of simply letting friction head changes naturally increase or decrease the flow as required.
Billions of dollars are being spent on "artificial intelligence" and it has not yet been achieved at the level of the multi-million dollar super computer. How much of it can they jam into the electronics of a $175 circulator?
Good point! All I know is that I have been doing just about everything wrong......as far as maximizing efficiency. It worked but I think I can make things a whole lot better. Just want to do it right this time and with the help from you guys here I know I will be able!
