Towards Integrating Behaviour Demand Response into Simulation Based Heat Production Optimisation †
2. Behaviour Modelling
3. Integration of BDR into Production Optimisation
- The production schedule optimiser (PSO) uses the district simulator to predict the expected performance of the district (1, 2)
- Similarly, the PSO uses the BDR optimisation module to predict the expected behavioural flexibility offered by the building occupants (3)
- To compute this quantity the BDR module uses the behavioural model outlined above in conjunction with the building simulator to estimate the available behavioural flexibility (4, 5, 6)
- Taking into consideration both the predicted performance of controllable production assets and the predicted behaviour demand response flexibility the PSO creates an optimal production schedule with respect to the external context and electricity market conditions (7, 8)
- During the operation the BDR module uses the behavioural model to optimally trigger BDR events through communicating with the building occupants and measuring their reactions to continuously learn the model parameters (9, 10)
- More aggregated demand flexibility becomes available as tradable asset and otherwise unused capacity can be accessed by the production schedule optimisation
- Prediction and real-time management of behavioural flexibility enables de-risking such approaches, with building occupants being explicit components of the system rather than potential outliers of the operation
- Integration of users as active participants enhances acceptance and increases the reach of the optimisation to potentially also include non-connected and legacy systems
