Power Load Management as a Multi-Commodity Market

This paper is quite non-technical and written for people with general background in computer science or electrical engineering.


The current report investigates the application of market-oriented programming to power load management. Power load management (or load management for short) is the management of loads at the customer side in order to manage energy systems more efficiently. As energy systems are very large and heavily distributed (typically including millions of loads in an area covering counties or countries), efficient and conceptually attractive methods are required for making load management successful. This report demonstrates how market-oriented programming can be utilized to meet the above demands.
