Abstract [en]

Peak load introduces stress to the grid as supplied electricity is inadequate during peak demand period. In order to relieve the stress of grid and ensure the electricity supply, peak load shifting is an effective option. Buildings are consuming a huge amount of energy for space heating, ventilation and cooling. Using building thermal inertia to shift peak load has attracted more and more attention. By using thermal inertia, heat supplied during off-peak periods can be stored in the construction materials, and used in peak demand hours. However, peak shaving shall not sacrifice the indoor thermal comfort. The objective of this work is to investigate the impact of demand shifting by using thermal inertia on the indoor temperature. In order to understand how the demand shifting impacts the thermal comfort. A CFD model is developed to simulate an office room in winter time. Three cases that represent different shifting strategies are studied. According the results, when increasing the heating temperature, using thermal inertia of buildings can shift peak load, guarantee indoor thermal comfort and save energy. © 2018 International Heat Transfer Conference.
