Abstract or Summary
  • This design of a Grid Friendly Electric Hot Water Heater Thermostat was built for the Electrical and Computer Engineering Senior Design course, ECE44x. The design enables hot water heaters to respond to imbalances in the grid seen through deviations from standard grid frequency by varying the power output to the heating element. It also utilizes ZigBee technology to enable a remote user to control load and uses an accelerometer to enable automatic shutoff when the device has tipped over. The project was overseen by Oregon State Professor Ted Brekken and co-designed by Conor Hennessy and Julia Studley. This thesis provides an overview for modern energy storage and “Grid Friendly” technologies, presents the technical design of the project, highlights my individual contributions to the project, and reviews the results of the team effort.
