Abstract:To deal with challenges introduced by the adaption of Renewable Energy Sources, Demand SideManagement (DSM) methodologies are being developed that focus on the availability and reliability of our electricity supply. In the Netherlands, two methodologies referred as The PowerMatcher and Triana have been developed. In this research the methodologies have been combined because the strengths of the individual approaches complement each other. In order to combine the approaches, a novel bidding strategy is developed. This strategy is unique in the sense that it incorporates a device specific planning when the bidding function is determined. By means of use case simulations, in which the objective is set to minimize peaks and improve the self-consumption of the cluster, the performances of the combined DSM approach are evaluated. The simulations point out that the combination is capable of following a planning, as is determined by Triana, while performing real-time balancing, which deals with prediction errors. It is shown that following a planning mitigates the effect exploiting flexibility on undesired periods. In the use case simulations, this results in a peak reduction of 25%.
