Kamel, Fouad and Kist, Alexander A. (2009) End-user’s tools towards an efficient electricity consumption: the dynamic smart grid. In: SSEE 2009: Solutions for a Sustainable Planet, 22-24 Nov 2009, Melbourne, Australia .
Growing uncontrolled electrical demands have caused increased supply requirements. The market is presently characterized by regular daily peak demand conditions associated with high electricity prices. A demand-side
response system can limit peak demands to an acceptable level. The proposed scheme is based on energy demand and price information which is available online. An online server is used to communicate the information of electricity suppliers to users, who are able to use the
information to manage and control their own demand. A configurable, intelligent switching system is used to control local loads during peak events and manage the loads at other times as necessary. The aim is to shift end user loads towards periods where energy demand and therefore also prices are at the lowest. As a result, this will flatten the load profile and avoiding load peeks which are costly for suppliers. The scheme is an endeavour towards achieving a dynamic smart grid demand-side response environment using information-based communication and computer-controlled switching. Diffusing the scheme shall lead to improved electrical supply services and controlled energy consumption and prices.
