Identifying a model for control of a heterogeneous population of thermostatically controlled loads

Semester Thesis, FS13 (10278)

The increased use of programmable, communicating thermostats could represent an opportunity to examine in real-time and eventually control the power demand of large populations of electrical loads. In this project, the stochastic dynamics of a system of heterogeneous thermostatically controlled loads (TCLs) are numerically simulated based on a system of stochastic di erential equations. Subsequently, the parameters of an easier to analyze continuous-time Markov chain model are tted to capture the time evolution of the temperature and the power consumption of the TCLs. The obtained model provides accurate approximations of the temperature dynamics of thermostatically controlled loads and could if further explored allow the control of the power consumption of the TCL population
