Abstract

The ever-increasing demand for power has stimulated the development of a range of Demand Side Management (DSM) strategies that match end user consumption to the available mix of generation. The challenge of evaluating the performance of such schemes is massive since practical deployments are costly and hence flexible software evaluation/development environments become an attractive alternative. This paper details a versatile Distributed Demand Side Management Integrated Development Environment with multi-agent support (DDSM-IDEA), a platform to develop, execute, and evaluate the performance of various agentless and agent-based DSM and DDSM algorithms offering a spectrum of different resources, agents, and tools bundled into one package. The IDE platform includes a robust habitual demand profile generation module based on personal activity profiles, manual and automatic appliance control, and instantaneous demand disaggregation which in addition to its other capabilities and resources, makes it a more complete solution. The DDSM-IDEA is tested and several DSM and DDSM strategies are implemented and evaluated.
