Decentralized Control of Thermostatic Loads for Flexible Demand Response

  title={Decentralized Control of Thermostatic Loads for Flexible Demand Response},
  author={Simon H. Tindemans and Vincenzo Trovato and Goran Strbac},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology},
Thermostatically controlled loads (TCLs), such as refrigerators, air-conditioners and space heaters, offer significant potential for short-term modulation of their aggregate power consumption. This ability can be used in principle to provide frequency response services, but controlling a multitude of devices to provide a measured collective response has proven to be challenging. Many controller implementations struggle to manage simultaneously the short-term response and the long-term payback… CONTINUE READING
