Recent studies on control of aggregate power of an ensemble of thermostatically-controlled-loads (TCLs) have been concentrated on shifting the temperature set points of each TCL in the population. A sudden shift in the set point, however, is known to be associated with undesirable power oscillations which require closed-loop control strategies to regulate the aggregate power consumption of the population. In this article, we propose a new approach which we term as a “safe protocol” to implement… CONTINUE READING
