Occupant Behavior Model For Households To Estimate High-temporal Resolution Residential Electricity Demand Profile

Yohei Yamaguchi, Takuya Fujimoto, Yoshiyuki Shimoda

Abstract: This paper presents a preliminary study on occupant behavior modeling for estimating high-resolution electricity demand profile of residential buildings. First, the existing occupant behavior models are considered. We then introduce an occupant behavior model developed on the basis of the approach employed in an existing model and an energy demand model that uses the output of the occupant behavior model to produce a high-temporal resolution electricity demand profile. The results of the models were analyzed to address the key challenges in modeling high-temporal resolution electricity demand. We finally suggest a research plan to overcome these key challenges.
