An Integration and Operation Framework of Geothermal Heat Pumps in Distribution Networks

  title={An Integration and Operation Framework of Geothermal Heat Pumps in Distribution Networks},
  author={Lei Liang and Xuan Zhang and Hongbin Sun},
The application of the energy-efficient thermal and energy management mechanism in Geothermal Heat Pumps (GHPs) is indispensable to reduce the overall energy consumption and carbon emission across the building sector. Besides, in the Virtual Power Plant (VPP) system, the demand response of clustered GHP systems can improve the operating flexibility of the power grid. This paper presents an integration and operation framework of GHPs in the distribution network, applying a layered communication… Expand
