PROJECT TITLE :
Experimental Evaluation of Frequency Regulation From Commercial Building HVAC Systems
Automated demand response can be a valuable resource for ancillary services in the power grid. This paper illustrates this value with the first experimental demonstration of frequency regulation from commercial building heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. The experiments were conducted in Pugh Hall, a 40000 sq. ft. commercial building located at the University of Florida. Detailed are the steps required to make this possible, including control architecture, system identification, and control design. Experiments demonstrate: that satisfactory frequency regulation service can be provided by the HVAC system without noticeable effect on the indoor climate, and the ancillary service provided by this system passes the qualification criteria for participating in the Pennsylvania-New Jersey-Maryland (PJM) interconnection’s frequency regulation market.
