IFIV: Remote control of heat pumps for smart grid purposes
The BRP controls the individual heat pumps.
For eachhour an amount of energy is bought in advance.
Each house is controlled by the VPP in orderkeep the house temperature within a predefined band using the boughtenergy.
The VPP calculates the possibleregulating power eachhour.
Tested on 6 inhabited single family houses.
Results for one house 18-19 April 2012 is shown.
Spot plan power is the purchasedenergy for the house.
Active plan power is the real time control signal to the house.
Heat pump power is measured power from the heat pump.
It is seenthat the active plan is approximately the same as the spot plan power.
The room temperature is within the comfortbounds.
A lowthresholdvalue on the heatedwater tank temperature forces additional heat pump starts.

The overall goal of the project is to allow an increase in penetration of wind energy in the power grid. This will be realized by the optimal distribution of consumption in refrigeration systems and electricity production.
