Abstract

In the DSM (Demand Side Management) system, a control method for controlling electric appliances in living space should take account of environmental amenity. This paper focuses on a trade-off relationship between power consumption and environmental amenity. We proposed a new method to evaluate this relationship, and it enables to optimize the environmental amenity by air conditioning under the restriction of total power consumption. The proposed method was evaluated by using real environment. This evaluation shows the proposed could improve up to 27.4% in temporary summation of comfort index compared with an existing method.
