An actual sports-entertainment centre is utilised as a testbed, simulated with EnergyPlus, and the strategy followed during the DR event is the modification of the chiller water temperature of the cooling system. An artificial neural network (ANN) and a support vector machine (SVM) predictive model, are utilised to predict the DR potential of the building, due to the significant amount of execution time of the EnergyPlus model. The data-driven models are trained and tested based on synthetic databases. Results demonstrate that both ANN and SVM models can accurately predict the building electrical power demand for the scenarios without or with daily DR events, whereas both predictive models are not accurate in forecasting the electrical demand during the rebound effect.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IBPSA||Keywords:||Building electrical demand; Demand response; Data-driven models; Neural networks; Support vector machines||DOI:||10.26868/25222708.2017.441||Other versions:||https://www.buildup.eu/en/events/building-simulation-bs2017-2017
