Heat Load Reductions and Their Effect on Energy Consumption
Responsible organisation
2010 (English)Conference paper, (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In this paper we investigate the consequences of using temporary heat load reductions on consumer substations, from the perspective of the individual consumer as well as the district heating company. The reason for using such reductions are normally to save energy at the consumer side, but the ability to control the heat load also lie at the core of more complex control processes such as Demand Side Management (DMS) and Load Control (LC) within district heating systems. The purpose of this paper is to study the way different types of heat load reductions impact on the energy usage as well as on the indoor climate in the individual buildings. We have performed a series of experiments in which we have equipped multi-apartment buildings with wireless indoor temperature sensors and a novel type of load control equipment, which gives us the ability to perform remotely supervised and coordinated heat load reductions among these buildings. The results show that a substantial lowering of the heat load and energy usage during periods of reductions is possible without jeopardizing the indoor climate, although we show that there are differences in the implications when considering different types of heat load reductions.

Abstract [sv]

Denna artikel undersöker effekterna av att använda tillfälliga laststyrningar i fjärrvärmecentraler. Studien fokuserar både på effekterna ur aspekter relaterade till såväl enskilda konsumenter som fjärrvärmeföretag.
