Title: LOAD SHEDDING CONTROL FOR CYCLED OR VARIABLE LOAD APPLIANCES
Abstract:
Control of a variable output appliance of a small energy consumer participating in an electrical load shedding program. A baseline operating characteristic of the appliance is determined for ordinary operation (such as in an absence of any load shedding requirements). An amount by which to reduce output of the appliance is determined in accordance with the load shedding program. Operation of the appliance is controlled to achieve the output reduction in accordance with the load shedding. This approach enables providing incentive for the small energy consumer to participate in the load shedding program, the incentive being based on the amount by which output is reduced, thereby representing a reduction of actual energy consumption for that small energy consumer.
