Smart grid integration of an existing office building: modelling and simulation of adaptation strategies - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Hilty, Lorenz; Bornhöft, Nikolaus A (2013). Smart grid integration of an existing office building: modelling and simulation of adaptation strategies. In: EnviroInfo 2013 – 27th International Conference on Informatics for Environmental Protection, Hamburg, Deutschland, 2 September 2013 - 4 September 2013, 790-797.

Abstract

The development of smart grids makes possible the introduction of dynamic electricity rates, with prices changing each hour. Dynamic rates can reflect the temporal dependency of supply and demand for electrical power and network capacity, thus avoiding load peaks and promoting the use of fluctuating renewable energy sources. We present a simulation model that studies the electricity demand for heating and cooling modern office buildings in the context of dynamic electricity prices. The model permits the simulation of scenarios in which existing thermal energy reservoirs (warm and cold water tanks) are used for the smart grid integration by means of adapted control strategies. The adaptation to dynamic electricity rates – and thus indirectly to the fluctuating supply of wind and solar power – is achieved solely by changing the control of the existing infrastructure without changing the infrastructure itself.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
