Power flexibility integrated at cooling systems in buildings. A survey and bibliometric approach

Debrayan Bravo Hidalgo


The increase in the quality of life, the world population and its concentration in large cities, give
great importance to buildings and their energy services. Maintaining conditions of thermal comfort and indoor air quality is the function of thermal cooling machines that are responsible for most of the energy consumption of non-industrial buildings. In this context, the present scientific contribution aims to examine the integration of Power Flexibility (PF) in building cooling systems. This objective is achieved through three alternatives: thermal energy storage, electrical energy storage and thermal inertia of the refrigerated mass inside the building. The results are focused on the following aspects: a bibliometric analysis of the power flexibility integrated in the cooling systems, the integrated power flexibility in cooling systems, the selection of the type of flexibility of the power system and barriers to power flexibility systems.
