Title
Reduced energy cost of heat-pump driven heating systems by smart use of thermal storage.
Author
Abstract
A day-ahead electricity price offers opportunities for demand response strategies in heat pump-based collective heating systems. However, a trade-off between energy cost and operational system efficiency (heat losses and production efficiency) needs to be made. This research identifies the cost saving potential for a real case study by applying various temperature control schemes in a collective space heating network. Results show that adjusting the temperature set point can yield daily cost savings of up to 40,2%. However, the optimal temperature increase depends on heat loads and price volatility of that day.
