Abstract

Due to the limited generation capacity of power stations, many developing countries frequently resort to disconnecting large parts of the power grid from supply, a process termed load shedding. This leaves homes without electricity, causing them discomfort and inconvenience. Because fairness is not a priority when shedding load, some homes bear the brunt of these effects. In this paper, we present our ongoing research into considering fairness when shedding load at the household level.
