Abstract:The growing awareness of the greenhouse gas effect and rising energy prices lead to more and more initiatives to improve energy efficiency. These initiatives range from micro-generation, local energy storage and more efficient appliances to controllers with optimization objectives. However, the introduction of these initiatives might have a significant impact on the current electricity infrastructure. Furthermore, it is difficult to analyse the succes on the energy efficiency of the introduction of (combinations of) these initiatives.
Therefore, a simulator is develloped to analyse the impact
of different combinations of micro-generators, energy buffers, appliances and control algorithms on the energy efficiency, both within the house and on bigger scale. The simulator is easily adaptable for new types of micro-generators, controllers and other supported devices.
First simulations with the simulator show that the results are correct and promising. However, especially the usage of resources during the simulation has to decrease.
