Article
Full-text available
The difficulty in balancing energy supply and demand is increasing due to the growth of diversified and flexible building energy resources, particularly the rapid development of intermittent renewable energy being added into the power grid. The accuracy of building energy consumption prediction is of top priority for the electricity market manageme...
Article
Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems (HVAC), at demand side, have been regarded increasingly as promising candidates to provide frequency regulation service to smart power grids. In many control systems, chilled water outlet temperature setpoint is reset to change the power use of HVAC systems after the regulation capacity is determine...
Article
With the rapid development of large-scale building energy monitoring platforms, it is of great significance to develop precise forecasting methods for buildings on a large scale to achieve better energy system design, system operation, energy management, and renewable energy integration in the grid. Traditionally, using all available historical dat...
Article
Full-text available
The penetration rates of intermittent renewable energies such as wind and solar energy have been increasing in power grids, often leading to a massive peak-to-valley difference in the net load demand, known as a “duck curve”. The power demand and supply should remain balanced in real-time, however, traditional power plants generally cannot output a...
Article
In recent years, with the rapid growth of electricity demand and the development of smart grids, demand-side management had an important role. As the penetration rate of distributed renewable energy generation in the grid increases, the diurnal peak of the net load demand curve in the urban area is offset by renewable energy sources such as photovo...
Article
With the development of data-driven models, extracting information from historical data for better energy forecasting is critically important for energy planning and optimization in buildings. Feature engineering is a key factor in improving the performance of forecasting models. Adding load pattern labels for different daily energy consumption pat...
Article
Traditional rural energy sources, such as straw, firewood, and coal are the main energy resources in developing countries; however, these resources are associated with low efficiency and can cause considerable air pollution. With the rapid development of renewable energy worldwide, existing energy frameworks in rural areas need to be urgently trans...
Article
Electricity demand response (DR) improves the overall energy management efficiency and allows for the integration of large-scale renewable energy into the power grid through interactive management and control of the supply and demand sides. However, in China and other emerging countries (e.g., Japan and Australia) with DR programs, the DR market me...
Article
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, combined with the internal thermal mass of buildings, have been deemed to be promising means of providing demand response (DR) resources, particularly for buildings with active energy storage systems. DR resources, such as peak-load reduction potential, can provide grid-responsive support r...
Article
This paper presents an ensemble algorithm based on a new load decomposition method to forecast short-term metropolitan-scale electric load. In this method, a decision tree for hourly seasonal attributes and a weighted average method for daily seasonal attributes are first applied to divide seasons into a completely different way. Then, the load of...
Article
Electric demand flexibility in buildings has been deemed to be a promising demand response resource, particularly for large commercial buildings, and it can provide grid-responsive support. A building with a higher electricity flexibility potential has a higher degree of involvement with the grid response. If the electricity flexibility potential o...
Article
The energy performance and energy flexibility potential of a sorption-assisted water storage (SAWS)for a medium-scale residential building with eight apartments under the climatic condition of Potsdam, Germany were investigated. The SAWS system consists of a stratified water storage coupled to an adsorption heat pump (AHP). The driving heat source...
Article
Full-text available
There are many problems with the present centralized energy systems. With the advancement of distributed energy systems and the advancement of renewable energy technologies, the supply of electricity and heat will be gradually decentralized, forming the Energy Internet combined with information technology that makes energy transactions easier and m...
Article
Occupancy is one of the main factors affecting building energy consumption. The occupancy data, which refer to the occupancy number in this paper, has been widely used in the building simulation field. However, due to the stochastic nature of occupant behavior, it is hard to predict and measure how many people stay in a given building. The rapid de...
Article
Demand Response (DR) aims at improving the operation efficiency of power plants and grids, and it constitutes an effective means of reducing grid risk during peak periods to ensure the safety of power supplies. One key challenge related to DR is the calculation of load baselines. A fair and accurate baseline serves as useful information for resourc...
Article
Demand response (DR) is an efficient method to flatten the demand curves of end-use customers. This paper studies the feasibility of an adsorption heat pump in the DR of a residential building under winter operating conditions. Stratified storage is introduced into the stratified heat pump system to realize heat recovery, which is also used as a bu...
