Abstract

With the development of smart cities models, an electric market with variable hourly costs will be available. For a reference building-plant system with radiant emitters supplied by electric heat pumps simulated in TRNSYS 18, energy, economic and comfort evaluations have allowed to investigate on the role of the building thermal mass to manage the mismatching between favourable electric costs and thermal loads request. A parametric study was carried out by varying the thermal mass of external walls, the thermostats dead band and the heat pump control strategy, taking into account also the price of the local electric market for wholesalers.
