Modern cities and industrial centers boast a developed energy infrastructure including fuel, electric, heating, and cooling systems. The integration of many separate system into a single technological complex can provide new functional capabilities, the application of more advanced technologies for operation, and the establishment of integrated energy systems. Such systems have a multidimensional structure of functional features and properties of development. The control of integrated energy systems with load-controlled consumers represents an urgent and a rather challenging task. The paper is concerned with an approach to short-term control of integrated energy systems with load-controlled consumers. Planning the daily electricity and heat loads is performed for an integrated energy system, including energy storage systems and electric water heaters, electrical shiftable loads of individual consumers as well as power generation by additional electricity and heat sources (PV systems, wind turbines, heat pumps). The optimal daily profiles are obtained based on the initial profiles of electricity and heat loads, photovoltaic generation and optimal profiles of using electricity and heat storage systems and shiftable load. Optimal daily electricity and heat load profiles differ greatly from the initial ones, which provides a reduction in the energy costs for the consumer.
