Modeling populations of electric hot water tanks with Fokker-Planck equations

Authors: N. Beeker, P. Malisani, N. Petit, 2nd IFAC Workshop on Control of systems Governed by Partial Differential Equations, CPDE 2016, pp. 66-73, June 13-15, 2016, Bertinoro, DOI: 10.1016/j.ifacol.2016.07.420
This article proposes a distributed parameters model for a pool of electric hot water tanks (EHWT). EHWT are electric appliances found in numerous homes where they produce hot water for domestic usages. Designing smart piloting for them requires a careful description of several variables of interest and their dynamics. When the number of such devices is large, these dynamics can be lumped into Fokker-Planck equations. In this case, these equations are driven by in-domain control which defines the heating policies in a stochastic manner. The main contribution of this article is the Fokker-Planck model of a pool of EHWT.
