CONTROL OF INDOOR SWIMMING POOLS WITH POTENTIAL FOR DEMAND RESPONSE

E. Ribeiro, H. M. Jorge, D. A. Quintela

Abstract

Buildings with indoor swimming pools are recognised as very high-energy consumers and present a great potential for electrical and thermal energy savings. A building energy management system (BEMS) could be conceived in order to optimize the building energy demand and with smart grid interaction. This paper presents the condition and potential contract-based demand side response in indoor swimming pools context. The BEMS designed by the authors implements control strategies for HAVAC and pumping system in order to reduce the electricity demand during peak hours or in response to a emergency signal from the system operator in critical times. These strategies can carry out a significant reduction on power demand both in HVAC and pumping systems.
