Pigeon Inspired Optimization and Enhanced Differential Evolution in Smart Grid Using Critical Peak Pricing

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes on Data Engineering and Communications Technologies book series (LNDECT, volume 8)


In this paper, we have evaluated the performance of heuristic algorithms; Enhanced Differential Evolutionary (EDE) and Pigeon Inspired Optimization(PIO) for Demand Side Management (DSM). Moreover, Critical Peak Pricing (CPP) is used as a price traffic. The main purpose of this paper is to reduce Peak to Average Ratio (PAR) and electricity cost by scheduling appliances according to categories and constraints. Simulation results demonstrate that PIO outperforms in terms of user comfort.
