Abstract 

The building sector in the United States accounts for about 70% of electricity energy, in which 41.4% of energy consumption is directly related to space heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC). HVAC systems play an important role in making the electric grid more robust for intermittent renewable power generation. The large thermal storage capacity of buildings allows HVAC systems to act as appropriate and flexible candidates to mitigate various renewable integration problems via buildings-to-grid (B2G) integration. This seminar discusses many of the scientific techniques developed for the adaptive modeling and optimal control of building systems, with an emphasis on aggregated loads to perform load following and regulation of ancillary services, enabling the further adoption of intermittent renewable energy generation.
