A major benefit of the smart grid is that it can provide real-time pricing, which enables residential electricity customers to reduce their electricity expenses by scheduling their appliance use. A commonly utilized technique is to operate electrical appliances when the price of electricity is low. Although this technique is simple in principle and easy to(More)
Minimizing energy usage and increasing occupant comfort are the two primary objectives of intelligent and eco-friendly buildings. Energy savings of up to 70%, combined with significant occupant productivity gains are possible via the application of wireless sensor and actuator networks (WSAN). Despite the increasing interests in WSAN-based wireless(More)
Demand response plays a key role in saving energy expenditure for future smart grid systems. For a system with multiple users which have different energy consumption and real-time requirements, the scheduling problem is quite challenging. In this work, we propose a novel distributed opportunistic scheduling scheme based on the optimal stopping rule(More)
