“Ήτοι μεν πρώτιστα χάος γένετο.” (“Verily at the first Chaos came to be.”)Hesiod (ca.750 BC), Theogonia, 116.—The opening tune of my dark progressive album “Quantum Arkanum”, featuring stoner, sludge and psychedelic elements, with some classical flavour. Quantum Prana: guitars, bass, voices, drum programming, mixing & mastering. Cover illustration by Gustave Doré (1832-1883).
Office Building Tenants’ Electricity Use Model for Building Performance Simulationshttps://www.mdpi.com/1996-1073/13/21/5541 Abstract Large office buildings are responsible for a substantial portion of energy consumption in urban districts. However, thorough assessments regarding the Nordic countries are still lacking. In this paper we analyse the largest dataset to date for a Nordic office building, by considering a case… Read More New paper on energy data mining now published
Our latest paper introduces a tabulated tool that aids in the early design of geothermal systems, by providing estimates of the system’s efficiency according to the chosen energy piles field configuration and heat pump sizing.

Here is a lyrics video I made for my collaboration with the band Spy, a short progressive rock track in 5/8 about a stalker and its obsession. Pretty experimental on many levels!
So here is Echoes From A Great Distance (where I play bass) covering the magnificent One Hundred Years by The Cure.https://soundcloud.com/echoesfro…/one-hundred-years-the-cure .We have just released a full cover album, featuring Bauhaus, Midnight Oil, The Mission, Pere Ubu, Diaframma and Franti. Check it out on the band’s Soundcloud!
I have published a lyrics video for the radio edit version of my song Sabbatical Leave. You can watch it below or on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1mfO0uZ7co The full version of the track is on my Soundcloud profile at https://soundcloud.com/quantumprana/sabbatical-leave
We published a new article! Highlights of the paper, available at https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jobe.2020.101387: A novel method for the accurate calculation of total setpoint variations. Effects of real system losses are better represented than with component assessment Simulations of annual energy consumption compare losses for new and old building. A common platform to compare emission efficiency under… Read More New paper published: “A novel method for calculating heat emitter and controller configuration setpoint variations with EN15316-2”.

“Sabbatical Leave” is the first tale of “The Adventures of Prof. Gideon Longbottom”. The evil researcher hates the world, and particularly his students with their smartphones always at hand. He therefore takes a Sabbatical leave to close himself into a laboratory in the cellar, for designing a weapon of mass destruction…with some (dark) humour. Quantum… Read More “Sabbatical Leave” – a new track
