Title: METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR MANAGING AND PREDICTING UTILITY CONSUMPTION
Abstract:
A joint utility predictor and controller (JUPAC) system would allow a utility such as an energy supplier and its consumers to better predict electricity grid activity and then, optimize its energy production, management, distribution, and consumption. The more accurate the prediction the more positive its economic and environmental impacts will be. A JUPAC system at a consumer collects ambient parameters, user patterns, and energy usage before by exploiting an embedded machine learning algorithm it predicts the consumer's future consumption This prediction may be recurrently transmitted to the energy supplier as a formatted commitment then, in a second time, the same device will try to respect this commitment by adjusting, wisely, the user appliances and heating - ventilation and air conditioning. As a result, an energy supplier can crowd-source the global energy demand by aggregating highly detailed individual consumption commitments as well as allowing consumers to manage consumption against pricing - power tariffs.
