Combined heat and power (CHP) is a typical community owned distributed generation solution in microgrid development. In this work, the ratio between the electricity output and the thermal output is controlled, along with the demand side load management, so as to minimize the overall microgrid operational cost. A model is established for the energy cost of a smart building system, which includes factors such as the real time electricity pricing, the capacity and constraints within CHP operation, the operating condition of heating, ventilation, and air - conditioning (HVAC), and the indoors air temperature of the smart building. Efficient CHP operation and HVAC load management under demand response (DR) are determined through optimization. A case study is carried out to examine the effectiveness of the proposed strategy.
