Demand Shifting With Thermal Mass in Light and Heavy Mass Commercial Buildings - 2007
Author:
Xu, P
Year:
2007
Abstract:

The principle of pre‐cooling for demand shifting and shedding is to pre‐cool buildings during off‐peak hours (at night or in the morning), cooling the building thermal mass and thereby reducing cooling loads during the peak hours. Savings are achieved by reducing on‐peak energy and demand charges. The potential for utilizing building thermal mass for load shifting and peak demand reduction has been demonstrated in a number of simulation, laboratory, and field studies.
