Electrical power systems have been developed to more advanced structures called as “smart grids”. Among many other issues, demand side management (DSM) is one of the important instruments of the smart grids. DSM techniques increase the efficiency of the grid, and modify consumer’s electrical demand via demand response (DR) programs using financial incentives. In this study, shiftable domestic loads scheduled by Cuckoo search algorithm (CSA) to ensure balanced load curve as much as possible… CONTINUE READING
