A Markovian jump process-driven stochastic hybrid-state model, and its application for the prediction of the behavior of controlled electric water heating loads in power systems

Load management is a rapidly emerging concept in the electric power systems area. Not with standing the particular kind of load management used by an electric utility, analytical models of the load behavior are essential if one wishes to address the issues of optimal load management, using the tools of control theory. A statistical aggregation based load… (More)
