Dynamics of load balancing with constraints

Regular Article
Part of the following topical collections:
  1. Resilient Power Grids and Extreme Events


In this paper, we consider a centralized strategy for scheduling charging patterns of electrical vehicles and other batteries in power grids. We formulate it as a load balancing problem with constraints, which tries to distribute the charging loads both spatially and temporally. We show that a variant of herding system can be applied to load balancing.
