—Cloud gaming now makes any computer game playable on a thin client without the previous worries and frustrations about the hardware requirements. It frees players from the need to frequently upgrade their computers as they can now play games that are hosted on remote servers with a broadband Internet connection and a thin client. However, cloud games are(More)
—The large short timescale variability of renewable energy resources presents significant challenges to the reliable operation of power systems. This variability can be mitigated by deploying fast-ramping generators. However, these generators are costly to operate and produce environmentally harmful emissions. Fast-response energy storage devices, such as(More)
— A 3-node lossy source coding problem for a 2-DMS (X1, X2) is considered. Source nodes 1 and 2 observe X1 and X2, respectively, and each wishes to reconstruct the other source with a prescribed distortion. To achieve these goals, nodes 1 and 2 send descriptions of their sources to relay node 3. The relay node then broadcasts a joint description to the(More)
An information theoretic formulation of the distributed averaging problem previously studied in computer science and control is presented. We assume a network with m nodes each observing a WGN source. The nodes communicate and perform local processing with the goal of computing the average of the sources to within a prescribed mean squared error distortion.(More)
— Integrating energy storage into the grid in scenarios with high penetration of renewable resources remains a significant challenge. Recently, Risk Limiting Dispatch (RLD) was proposed as a mechanism that utilizes information and market recourse to reduce reserve capacity requirements, emissions and other system operator objectives. Among other benefits,(More)
—The high variability of renewable energy is a major obstacle toward its increased penetration. Energy storage can help reduce the power imbalance due to the mismatch between the available renewable power and the load. How much can storage reduce this power imbalance? How much storage is needed to achieve this reduction? This paper presents a simple(More)
