Demand Response-Enabled Model Predictive HVAC Load Control in Buildings using Real-Time Electricity Pricing

ABSTRACT

A practical cost and energy efficient model predictive control (MPC) strategy is proposed for HVAC load control under dynamic realtime electricity pricing. The MPC strategy is  built based on a proposed model that jointly minimizes the total energy consumption Continue reading

Multi Disciplinary Modeling , Control, and Optimization of a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell/Gas Turbine Hybrid Power System

ABSTRACT

This thesis describes a systematical study, including multidisciplinary modeling, simulation, control, and optimization, of a fuel cell– gas turbine hybrid power system that aims to  increase the system efficiency and decrease the energy costs Continue reading
