Aggregation of flexible loads and power generation of solar photo-voltaic (PV) systems is considered as a valuable power resource in residential demand response (DR). Despite the rapid growth of smart appliances, there are few practical solutions for exploiting their potentials in DR load aggregation. In this paper, we present a practical multi-prosumer framework to enable the aggregator reach a minimum bidding power and participate in the wholesale market. This is attainable through directly rescheduling a large number of smart appliances and utilizing the surplus power generation of residential PVs. An optimization model is designed which maximizes the aggregator’s profit while respecting customers convenience. Fairness is a significant component of this model ensuring fair selection of appliances for shifting by the aggregator and not biased toward customers availability. We investigate the model as a hard instance of the 0-1 Knapsack problem and devise a heuristic algorithm to cope with its time complexity and to improve its scalability. The simulation results of two large-scale case studies are presented and discussed. It is demonstrated that the proposed framework is beneficial to both the aggregator and its customers, leading to a greener environment.
