A control system framework for privacy preserving demand response of thermal inertial loads

Published in 2015 IEEE International Conference on Smart Grid Communications (SmartGridComm), 2015

Three questions for Load Serving Entities (LSEs): how to control the total demand of a set of loads, and also what to control it to, all while respecting constraints on load states, as well as maintaining privacy of load states.
