DeLi2P - A User Centric, Scalable Demand Side Management Strategy for Smart Grids

Syed Muhammad Ali, Mohammad Naveed, Fahad Javed, Naveed Arshad, Jahangir Ikram
2015 Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Smart Cities and Green ICT Systems  
In essence we provide to the consumer a deadline centric interface. The deadlines solutions are generally not scalable.  ...  But instead of solving this problem as a scheduling for deadline problem we transform it to a priority based mechanism which is scalable but for the user interface and acceptability is not ideal.  ...  Coupling DSM with the future smart grids technologies therefore is being seen as the major resource for the future smart grids [15] .  ...

Scripting, control, and privacy in domestic smart grid technologies: Insights from a Danish pilot study

Meiken Hansen, Bettina Hauge
2017 Energy Research & Social Science  
Smart grid research in Denmark has increasingly turned its focus on aggregator trading flexibility achieved by remotely controlling appliances, studying the technologies involved rather than the control  ...  The design of the remote control appears to have promoted a preference for 'passive consumers' within a smart grid.  ...  One example of a goal is to change the timing of the charging of an EV to periods when electricity is generated from wind.  ...
