New generation electricity network called Smart Grid is a recently conceived vision for a cleaner, more efficient and cheaper electricity system. One of the major challenges of electricity network is that generation and consumption should be balanced at every moment. This paper introduces a new concept for controlling the demand side by the means of automatically enabling/disabling electric appliances to make sure that the demand is in match with the available supplies, based on the statistical… 
Lower tail estimation with Chernoff bound and its application for balancing electricity load by storage admission
In this paper we investigate the applicability of the Chernoff inequality in finding an upper bound on the probability of the lower tail of the aggregate load. The importance of Demand Side
Potential of a Population of Domestic Heat Pumps to Provide Balancing Service
This paper investigates the model of aggregated heat pumps as a source of the flexible load in Great Britain. A thermal model of a domestic heat pump was presented. A decentralised temperature


A Survey of Different Residential Energy Consumption Controlling Techniques for Autonomous DSM in Future Smart Grid Communications
This work discusses different energy consumption scheduling schemes that schedule the household appliances in real-time to achieve minimum energy consumption cost and reduce peak load curve in peak hours to shape the peak load demand.
Tackling the Load Uncertainty Challenges for Energy Consumption Scheduling in Smart Grid
Simulation results confirm that the proposed energy consumption scheduling algorithm can benefit both users, by reducing their energy expenses, and utility companies, by improving the peak-to-average ratio of the aggregate load demand.
Autonomous Demand-Side Management Based on Game-Theoretic Energy Consumption Scheduling for the Future Smart Grid
This paper presents an autonomous and distributed demand-side energy management system among users that takes advantage of a two-way digital communication infrastructure which is envisioned in the future smart grid.
A System Architecture for Autonomous Demand Side Load Management in Smart Buildings
This architecture can encapsulate the system functionality, assure the interoperability between various components, allow the integration of different energy sources, and ease maintenance and upgrading, and allows seamless integration of diverse techniques for online operation control, optimal scheduling, and dynamic pricing.
Peak Load Scheduling in Smart Grid Communication Environment
By adopting ECS unit, the total peaks in the load curve are reduced and the user's payment to the power utility becomes less due to efficiently managing their appliance operations and the cost of per unit energy generation is reduced by avoiding the peak power plants.
