Evaluation of Demand Shifting with Thermal Mass in Two Large Commercial Buildings
Author:
Xu, P.
Year:
2006
Abstract:

Building thermal mass can be used to reduce the peak cooling load. For example, in summer, the building mass can be pre-cooled during non-peak hours in order to reduce the cooling load in the peak hours. As a result, the cooling load is shifted in time and the peak demand is reduced. The building mass can be cooled most effectively during unoccupied hours because it is possible to relax the comfort constraints.
