SUPERVISORY CONTROL FOR PEAK REDUCTION IN COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS WHILE MAINTAINING COMFORT
This paper describes a supervisory control
strategy for limiting peak power demand by small and
medium commercial buildings while still meeting the
business needs of the occupants and without
compromise in comfort. This control strategy has two
features that make it relevant to new and existing
buildings. First, it is designed to operate with building
equipment, such as air conditioning and refrigeration
systems, as they are presently installed in most small
and medium commercial buildings. Therefore, the
supervisory control could be realized as a software-only
retrofit to existing building management systems.
Second, the proposed control acts as a supervisory
management layer over existing control systems, rather
than replacing them outright. The individual controls
make requests to the supervisory control which
strategizes its responses to accomplish energy
