Abstract

This paper studies the problem of utilizing energy storage systems to perform demand-response in microgrids. The objective is to minimize the operational cost while balancing the supply-and-demand mismatch. The design space is to select and schedule a subset of heterogeneous storage devices that arrive online with different availabilities. Designing a performance-optimized solution is challenging due to the existence of mixed packing and covering constraints in a combinatorial problem, and the essential need for online design. We devise an online algorithm and show that it achieves logarithmic bi-criteria competitive ratio. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of our algorithm.
