Abstract

This research focuses on a novel management strategy of a thermal energy storage (TES) system, along with the associated chillers, in order to increase solar photovoltaic (PV) penetration at Arizona State University's (ASU) Tempe campus. By charging the TES while the PV panels are producing power, and monitoring the maximum charging rate of the TES, it enables ASU to increase the amount of solar PV they're utilizing, and decrease their overall carbon footprint, while not sending any energy to the grid. Using this new management method, ASU will be able to increase their current PV generation by a factor of 3.46 and generate 48% of their annual energy needs.
