Abstract

A mathematical model was developed and optimization algorithms of building energy consumption for districts without connection to energy and gas supply systems were created. The model takes into account the features of weather conditions typical for a strongly continental climate with high seasonal and daily temperature differences and extremely low temperatures during the winter.

The model of co-use of an energy supply system based on renewable energy sources (wind turbines, solar collecting panels, photoelectric converters and heat pumps) with a cogeneration diesel-generator source of electricity and heat was developed based on the performed calculations and optimization. It was demonstrated that the energy supply model reduces by more than 1.5 times the diesel fuel consumption and environmental impact on the territory.

The calculation data was taken as a basis of the project of an energy-efficient cottage which was built in the Sverdlovsk region, settlement “Rastushchij”. In 2009 the project was granted the V. I. Vernadsky National Environmental Award.
