This paper presents a novel air-conditioning system with proactive demand response to smart grid. The system consists of a chilled water storage system (CWS) and a temperature and humidity independent control (THIC) air-conditioning system. Using this system, building power demand can be flexibly controlled as desired by implementing two demand response strategies: demand side bidding (DSB) strategy and demand as frequency controlled reserve (DFR) strategy, in respond to the day-ahead and hour-ahead power balance requirements of the grid, respectively. Considerable benefits can be achieved for both power companies and end-users under incentive pricing mechanisms. A case study concerning on the demand response performance of the proposed system is also conducted in an office building.
