Demand Response and Smart Buildings: A Survey of Control, Communication, and Cyber-Physical Security
Junjian Qi, Youngjin Kim, Chen Chen, Xiaonan Lu, Jianhui Wang
Article No.: 18
DOI: 10.1145/3009972

In this article, we perform a comprehensive survey of the technical aspects related to the implementation of demand response and smart buildings. Specifically, we discuss various smart loads such as heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning...

Towards Cyber-Physical Systems Design for Structural Health Monitoring: Hurdles and Opportunities
Md Zakirul Alam Bhuiyan, Jie Wu, Guojun Wang, Jiannong Cao, Wenjun Jiang, Mohammed Atiquzzaman
Article No.: 19
DOI: 10.1145/3086508

Large civil structures, such as bridges, buildings, and aerospace vehicles form the backbone of our society are critical to some catastrophic events such as damage. Wired sensor networks are usually adopted for structural health monitoring (SHM)...

Adaptive Real-Time Scheduling of Cyber-Physical Energy Systems
Daniele De Martini, Guido Benetti, Marco L. Della Vedova, Tullio Facchinetti
Article No.: 20
DOI: 10.1145/3047412

This article addresses the application of real-time scheduling to the reduction of the peak load of power consumption generated by electric loads in Cyber-Physical Energy Systems (CPES). The goal is to reduce the peak load while achieving a...

A Cloud-Based Black-Box Solar Predictor for Smart Homes
Srinivasan Iyengar, Navin Sharma, David Irwin, Prashant Shenoy, Krithi Ramamritham
Article No.: 21
DOI: 10.1145/3004056

The popularity of rooftop solar for homes is rapidly growing. However, accurately forecasting solar generation is critical to fully exploiting the benefits of locally generated solar energy. In this article, we present two machine-learning...

Data Analytics for Managing Power in Commercial Buildings
Gowtham Bellala, Manish Marwah, Martin Arlitt, Geoff Lyon, Cullen Bash, Amip Shah
Article No.: 22
DOI: 10.1145/3110219

Commercial buildings are significant consumers of electricity. We propose a number of methods for managing power in commercial buildings. The first step toward better energy management in commercial buildings is monitoring consumption. However,...

Optimal Control of PEVs with a Charging Aggregator Considering Regulation Service Provisioning
Tiansong Cui, Shuang Chen, Yanzhi Wang, Shahin Nazarian, Massoud Pedram
Article No.: 23
DOI: 10.1145/3086507

Plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) are considered the key to reducing fossil fuel consumption and an important part of the smart grid. The plug-in electric vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology in the smart grid infrastructure enables energy flow from...
