Abstract : We propose a framework to utilize load flexibility to be operated in a window of flexibility considering the price variations. The consumer inputs the window of flexibility, the period of operation and nominal power consumption trajectory governed by the load. We create a load shift matrix and minimize the cost of consumption of operating the device. For some devices such as electric vehicle, the nominal power consumption trajectory can be altered provided the total energy consumed in the window of flexibility is matched. The new power consumption trajectory can be found using profile steering. We also show that under the price taker assumption, the optimal control of aggregate of flexible loads is equivalent to optimally controlling each of the loads individually. Using real data from Pecan Street [1] and ERCOT wholesale market price [2] we conduct numerical experiment showing the efficacy of the proposed mechanism of performing price based demand response (DR).
