Abstract

This paper presents a control-oriented model for combined building climate comfort and aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) system. In particular, we first provide a description of building operational systems together with control framework variables. We then focus on the derivation of an analytical model for ATES system dynamics. The dynamics of stored thermal energy over time in each well of an ATES system is the most important concept for a building climate control framework. This concept is proportional to the volume and temperature of water in each well of an ATES system at each sampling time. In this paper we develop a novel mathematical model for both dynamical behavior of volume and temperature of water in each well of an ATES system and provide detailed steps for estimating the model parameters. To illustrate the applicability of our proposed model, a comparison based on an extensive simulation study using an aquifer groundwater simulation environment (MODFLOW) is provided.
