Mechanism Design for Demand Response Programs [article]

Deepan Muthirayan, Dileep Kalathil, Kameshwar Poolla, Pravin Varaiya
2019 arXiv   pre-print
This creates an incentive for agents to inflate their baselines. We propose a novel self-reported baseline mechanism (SRBM) where each agent reports its baseline and marginal utility.  ...  Called agents are paid for observed reductions from their self-reported baselines. Agents who are not called face penalties for consumption shortfalls below their baselines.  ...  It happens that for our self reported baseline mechanism (detailed in Section IV), truthful reporting is the dominant strategy.  ...

A Minimal Incentive-based Demand Response Program With Self Reported Baseline Mechanism [article]

Deepan Muthirayan, Enrique Baeyens, Pratyush Chakraborty, Kameshwar Poolla, Pramod P. Khargonekar
2019 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we propose a novel incentive based Demand Response (DR) program with a self reported baseline mechanism.  ...  Finally, we also show that the proposed method of self-reported baseline outperforms other baseline estimation methods commonly used in practice.  ...  Incentive-Based Demand Response Program The SO signals a DR event when the market price exceeds the TMC price. The novel DR program that we propose comprises a self-reported baseline mechanism.  ...

Wendy Nilsen, Anni Skipstein, Kristian A. Østby, Arnstein Mykletun
2017 European Journal of Public Health  
Conclusion: Work-family conflict is associated with later sickness absence, and work-family conflict is more common for women than for men.  ...  The double-burden hypothesis suggests this is due to higher work-family burden in women than men.  ...  Acknowledgement We wish to thank librarian Wenche Jacobsen at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health for teaching us systematic search strategies and for being such a nice person.  ...
