Dynamic energy pricing is a promising development that addresses the concern of finding an environmentally friendly solution to meeting energy needs of customers while minimizing their electrical energy bill. In this paper, we mathematically formulate the electrical energy bill minimization problem for cooperative networked consumers who have a single energy bill, such as those working in a commercial/industrial building. The idea is to schedule user requests for appliance use at different… Expand

Negotiation-based task scheduling to minimize user’s electricity bills under dynamic energy prices
TLDR
A negotiation-based iterative approach has been proposed that is inspired by the state-of-the-art Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) routing algorithms to address the problem of task scheduling of (a collection of) energy consumers with PV power generation facilities, in order to minimize the electricity bill. Expand
Demand-side load scheduling incentivized by dynamic energy prices
TLDR
Task scheduling policies that help consumers minimize their electrical energy cost by setting the time of use (TOU) of energy in the facility and a rank-based and force directed-based heuristic are presented to efficiently solve the problems. Expand
Profit maximization algorithms for utility companies in an oligopolistic energy market with dynamic prices and intelligent users
Dynamic energy pricing provides a promising solution for the utility companies to incentivize energy users to perform demand side management in order to minimize their electric bills. Moreover, theExpand
Concurrent optimization of consumer's electrical energy bill and producer's power generation cost under a dynamic pricing model
TLDR
Three models are presented for consumers, utility companies, and a third-part arbiter to optimize the cost to the parties individually and in combination and show results that show that the energy consumption distribution becomes very stable during the day utilizing the models. Expand
Profit maximization for utility companies in an oligopolistic energy market with dynamic prices
TLDR
This paper considers the process of determining dynamic electricity prices for electricity based on a modified Bertrand Competition Model of consumer behavior and in view of competition among multiple non-cooperative utility companies in an oligopolistic energy market and maximizes the conservative estimate on the profit for each utility company.

A Probability Theory Based Price Determination Framework for Utility Companies in an Oligopolistic Energy Market
Distributed power generation and distribution network with the dynamic pricing scheme are the major trend of the future smart grid. A smart grid is a network which contains multiple non-cooperativeExpand
A game-theoretic price determination algorithm for utility companies serving a community in smart grid
TLDR
This paper presents a practical solution in which no utility company can increase its expected profit by adjusting the price function, and introduces two models of price determination for utility companies under different assumptions. Expand
