A Multi-Commodity Market Approach to Power Load Management
This paper is quite technical and written for people with background in
computer science or electrical engineering.
Power load management is the concept of controlling the loads at the demand
side in order to run energy systems more efficiently. Energy systems are
inherently highly distributed and contain large number of loads, up to some
million. This implies that computationally and conceptually attractive methods
are required for this application.
In this paper we give two novel theorems for how to decompose general
resource allocation problems into markets. We also introduce a novel multi-commodity
market design to meet the demands of power load management. The approach
is demonstrated to lead to very high quality allocations, and to have
a number of advantages compared to current methods.
