Abstract

Recent work has suggested reducing electricity generation cost by cutting the peak to average ratio (PAR) without reducing the total amount of the loads. However, most of these proposals rely on consumer's willingness to act. In this paper, we propose an approach to cut PAR explicitly from the supply side. The resulting cut loads are then distributed among consumers by the means of a multiunit auction which is done by an intelligent agent on behalf of the consumer. This approach is also in line with the future vision of the smart grid to have the demand side matched with the supply side. Experiments suggest that our approach reduces overall system cost and gives benefit to both consumers and the energy provider.

Prescribing net demand for electricity market clearing
We consider a two-stage electricity market comprising a forward and a real-time settlement. The former pre-dispatches the power system following a least-cost merit order and facing an uncertain net demand. The latteropes with the plausible deviations by making use of power regulation during the actual

Demand Responsive Dynamic Pricing Framework for Prosumer Dominated Microgrids using Multiagent Reinforcement Learning
Demand Response (DR) has a widely recognized potential for improving grid stability and reliability. Traditional DR techniques come with several shortcomings, such as inability to handle operational uncertainties and incurring customer disutility. This paper proposes a new multiagent Reinforcement Learning (RL) based decision-making environment.

A unified decision making framework for supply and demand management in microgrid networks
This paper considers two important problems -- on the supply-side and demand-side respectively and studies both in a unified framework. On the supply side, we study the problem of energy sharing among microgrids with the goal of maximizing profit obtained from selling power. Under shortage of power,

Assisted Energy Management in Smart Microgrids
Demand response provides utilities with a mechanism to share with end users the stochasticity resulting from the use of renewable sources. Given the limited resources of microgrids, service interruption is an opposite objective to the one of service availability.

An Integrated Optimization + Learning Approach to Optimal Dynamic Pricing for the Retailer with Multi-type Customers in Smart Grids
This paper considers a realistic and meaningful scenario in the context of smart grids. The main objective is to support the retailer to make optimal day-ahead dynamic pricing decisions in such a mixed customer pool. We propose a two-level decision-making framework.

Stochastic Games for Smart Grid Energy Management with Prospect Prosumers
In this paper, the problem of smart grid energy management under stochasticynamics is investigated. At the demand side, it is assumed that customers can act as prosumers who own renewable energy sources and can both produce and consume energy. The interaction between the utility company and the prosumers is formulated as an online optimization problem in which the company learns its optimal energy allocation rules.
