Social Networking Reduces Peak Power Consumption in Smart Grid

Abstract

Minimizing the peak power consumption of electrical appliances under delay requirements is shown to be NP-hard. To address this, we propose a “family plan” approach that partitions users into groups and schedules users' appliances to minimize the peak power consumption of each group. Our scheme leverages the social network topology and statistical energy… (More)
