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
