Optimization concepts in district energy design and management - A case study

The integration of optimization techniques in building and district energy design constitute an essential tool for reducing the global impact of energy services. Appropriate dynamic energy management systems must be employed too in order to maintain a high level of performance in the operational phase and to obtain better system knowledge. Therefore, in the strategic energy planning of districts, it is necessary to embody the main concepts of Smart Grid and virtual power plants frameworks. In the research presented, the preliminary results from a case study are illustrated with a reflection on energy consumption subdivision and load profiles for the sizing and operational strategy definition of distributed generation systems.

Abstract

The integration of optimization techniques in building and district energy design constitute an essential tool for reducing the global impact of energy services. Appropriate dynamic energy management systems must be employed too in order to maintain a high level of performance in the operational phase and to obtain better system knowledge. Therefore, in the strategic energy planning of districts, it is necessary to embody the main concepts of Smart Grid and virtual power plants frameworks. In the research presented, the preliminary results from a case study are illustrated with a reflection on energy consumption subdivision and load profiles for the sizing and operational strategy definition of distributed generation systems.
