ESIC SP24 Power Seminar Series: Intelligent Control of Networked Buildings – A Conceptual Framework
WSU Pullman

Buildings are the biggest consumers of electrical energy in the USA – according to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), buildings account for 40% of total electricity consumed during the year 2020; out of which commercial and residential buildings account for 18% and 22% electricity consumption respectively. As a result, buildings become a potential asset for energy usage optimization from the point of view of electric grids. However, energy usage optimization is not the only problem that buildings lead to, the coupled problems of providing Quality of Service (QoS) to the occupants and supporting the grid with ancillary services also need to be dealt with for the complete utilization of buildings as an asset to the electric grid. The solution strategies for these problems arise from the confluence of diverse fields of Power Systems, Thermal systems, Control Systems, and Machine learning. This talk will provide a conceptual framework to come up with solutions for utilizing buildings as a grid-edge resource at scale.
