Surrogate Model of Multi-Period Flexibility from a Home Energy Management System

  title={Surrogate Model of Multi-Period Flexibility from a Home Energy Management System},
  author={Rui Pinto and Ricardo J. Bessa and Manuel A. Matos},
Near-future electric distribution grids operation will have to rely on demand-side flexibility, both by implementation of demand response strategies and by taking advantage of the intelligent management of increasingly common small-scale energy storage. Home energy management systems (HEMS) will play a crucial role on the flexibility provision to both system operators and market players like aggregators. Modeling multi-period flexibility from residential consumers (HEMS flexibility), such as…
