Abstract—The suppression of photovoltaic power generation output fluctuation has been investigated by using thermal radiative cooling/heating system. The thermal radiative cooling/heating system is novel equipment that can provide an energy-saving, comfortable and healthy living environments by utilizing heat pump technology and an active radiative heat transfer. The characteristic of this system is to maintain the thermal environment with respect to power fluctuations. Photovoltaic power generation has a characteristic that the amount of power generation varies according to the weather. When a large amount of photo-voltaic power generation is installed, the short-term supply and demand imbalance occurs, which causes the frequency deviation. Then, a method to suppress such power fluctuation by thermal radiative cooling/heating system is proposed. As a result of the numerical experiment, the proposed method shows efficient suppression performance.
