### A Semi-Markov Model for the Control of Thermostatically Controlled Load. (arXiv:1911.10307v1 [math.OC])

Considering the potential of thermostatically controlled loads (TCLs) to provide flexibility in demand response or load control, a semi-Markov model (SMM) for the ON/OFF controlled TCL is developed in this paper. This model makes full use of the adjustment flexibility of TCLs when the control period is long and maintains the diversity of switch state…
