The present invention provides a system and method for peak shaving for a conventional air conditioning system. Heat energy is removed from an energy storage medium during periods of low power consumption and then the storage medium is used to absorb heat energy from the refrigerant during periods of peak energy consumption.
In an air conditioning system which comprises a compressor to compress a refrigerant, a condenser to remove heat from the refrigerant and condense it, and an evaporator to evaporate the refrigerant for recycle to the compressor, the improvement which comprises a peak shaving system comprising: (a) means for storing a medium from which heat can be extracted and in which heat can be stored, (b) a first control valve for optionally diverting the flow of the refrigerant from the condenser to the first expansion valve and into the evaporator or directing the ...
