Resource Allocation Optimization in the Smart Grid and High-Performance Computing
MetadataShow full item record
This dissertation examines resource allocation optimization in the areas of Smart Grid and high-performance computing (HPC). The primary focus of this work is resource allocation related to Smart Grid, particularly in the areas of aggregated demand response (DR) and demand side management (DSM). Towards that goal, a framework for heuristic optimization for DR in the Smart Grid is designed. The optimization problem, denoted Smart Grid resource allocation (SGRA), controls a large set of individual customer assets (e.g., smart appliances) to enact a beneficial change on the electric power system ...
