Communication Modularity: A Practical Approach to Enabling Residential Demand Response
Author:

Abstract:

An important part of the smart grid vision is enabling communication-connectedness with residential devices so that they can be informed of grid conditions, including energy price, critical peaks, and other curtailment events. Informed devices may respond by reducing consumption or delaying their operation until another time, according to the preferences and settings of owners. Communication to intelligent devices, rather than cutting their power off with a remotely managed switch, provides more flexibility for consumers and allows manufacturers to innovate, discovering creative ways to maximize energy savings while minimizing user inconvenience.
