Secure integration of demand side flexibility to power systems
Abstract: The electricity power domain is facing unprecedented system changes
initiated by increasing penetration of novel technologies (e.g. massive
installation of renewables, energy storages at various levels) and market
arrangements (e.g. market integration, new market entities), which increases the
volatility in power system, which needs to be properly managed in order to keep
system reliability. On the other hand, traditional resources for power network
stabilization are decreasing due change of energy mix. Demand side flexibility
stands for a promising mechanism for enhancement of power network stabilization.
The contribution will introduce power system flexibility, where main focus will
be put on the demand side. The talk will cover description of whole value chain
of secure flexibility integration in the context of the SecureFlex project.
Different aspects will be presented ranging from the flexibility harvesting on
demand side to market product creation with emphasis on cost optimization and
maintaining network security and power quality.
