Making building energy systems easier to operate
The EU is moving away from fossil fuels and paving the way for a greener future with plans for near-zero energy homes. CO2 heat pumps will play a key role in a decarbonised future of building heating systems. The EU-funded ROCOCO2HP project will work to increase the efficiency of such systems. It is developing efficient real-time optimal control (RTOC) for the CO2 heat pump as part of a building energy supply system. The project will combine scientific expertise on RTOCs with advanced experimental conditions with the CO2 heat pump for residential heating use at the host laboratory. Machine learning methods will be used to develop the non-linear system model. The findings of this project will bring new knowledge and theories to develop new RTOCs, which currently have large computational load that in turn makes them difficult to operate with real building energy systems.
