  • Publication number: 20170373500
    Abstract: A method for peak load shaving uses an energy storage device. A controller predicts the threshold above which the energy consumed by a load is equal to the capacity of the storage device. Load forecasting methods include artificial neural networks and support vector machines to compute a real-time threshold estimate that is used to decide when to dispatch power from the energy storage device. The threshold estimates are adapted iteratively, using the most recent observed load and previous threshold estimates. The adaptive algorithm reduces the peak demand charge assessed to the customer compared to existing static approaches that compute dispatch policies in advance.
