A Study of the Pre-Programmed Thermostat Timer as a Load Control Device
MetadataShow full item record
Monitoring equipment was installed on a residential air conditioning unit to test the effects of a pre-programmed thermostat timer. This was done to determine its effect on the utility's load shape for the purpose of avoiding peak generation capacity. This report measured the temperature and energy changes as a result of the test.
