Robust Data-driven Profile-based Pricing Schemes

by   Jingshi Cui, et al.

To enable an efficient electricity market, a good pricing scheme is of vital importance. Among many practical schemes, customized pricing is commonly believed to be able to best exploit the flexibility in the demand side. However, due to the large volume of consumers in the electricity sector, such task is simply too overwhelming. In this paper, we first compare two data driven schemes: one based on load profile and the other based on user's marginal system cost. Vulnerability analysis shows that the former approach may lead to loopholes in the electricity market while the latter one is able to guarantee the robustness, which yields our robust data-driven pricing scheme. Although k-means clustering is in general NP-hard, surprisingly, by exploiting the structure of our problem, we design an efficient yet optimal k-means clustering algorithm to implement our proposed scheme.
