(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MONITORING HOT WATER SUPPLY IN A LOAD CONTROL NETWORK
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE SURVEILLANCE DE L'ALIMENTATION EN EAU CHAUDE DANS UN RÉSEAU DE COMMANDE DE CHARGE
Abstract
(EN)
Disclosed is a system and method for monitoring hot water supply in a load control network, and more particularly for ensuring that there is sufficient hot water available for a customer participating in a demand response program that uses, at least in part, water heaters as a component of the demand response program. A multi-meter that is external to the water heater is used to monitor an electrical power supply circuit on the water heater, to report preferably volts, amps, and power factor of the water heater. The multi-meter may use these measured values to, in turn, determine a current charge state of the water heater and thus ensure maintenance of an adequate supply of hot water, even in times of demand response curtailment.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système et un procédé de surveillance d'une alimentation en eau chaude dans un réseau de commande de charge, et plus particulièrement destinés à garantir que suffisamment d'eau chaude est disponible pour un client participant à un programme de réponse à la demande qui utilise, au moins en partie, des chauffe-eau en tant que composant du programme de réponse à la demande. Un multi-compteur qui est externe au chauffe-eau est utilisé pour surveiller un circuit d'alimentation électrique sur le chauffe-eau, pour rapporter de préférence les volts, les ampères et le facteur de puissance du chauffe-eau. Le multi-compteur peut utiliser ces valeurs mesurées pour, à son tour, déterminer un état de charge actuel du chauffe-eau et assurer ainsi la maintenance d'une alimentation adéquate d'eau chaude, même dans des temps de réduction de réponse à la demande.
