Smart integration of heat pumps by predictive controls

The integration of heat pumps into a PV and battery system faces the challenge of sharing the available PV power among the actors. In order to coordinate this competition, a suitable energy concept, as well as the control, must match. In a cluster of eight terraced houses, an energy system has been implemented, which should represent a smart integration of heat pumps. To coordinate the interaction of the components, model predictive controls are used. The simulation shows very good results for the predictive controls, but the results cannot be replicated in total practice.
