Upcoming Webinar 17th September 2020: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Demand-Side Response

We are pleased to announce an upcoming webinar hosted by IEEE Smart Grid, titled “Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Demand-Side Response” presented by Ioannis Antonopoulos, Benoit Couraud and Valentin Robu of the Smart Systems Group.

This event will be held Thursday, September 17, 2020 – 11:00am EDT

In the recent years, there has been a growing interest for the use of Distributed Demand-Side-Response (DDSR) to regulate the power system. DDSR consists in the coordination of distributed loads such as industrial, commercial and recently residential end-users to contribute to electricity suppliers’ portfolio balance or frequency regulation. The integration of commercial and residential end-users into DDSR comes with the need for Big Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions to optimize the contribution of these distributed assets. In this webinar, we describe what the key challenges of DDSR are, and how AI and Machine Learning (ML) solutions can address these challenges. Based on a recent review of research works and industrial projects, we will detail the principles of the most relevant AI techniques and will explain how they are used in the context of DDSR. Finally, we discuss a number of directions for future research in this area.
