Abstract:Using the exibility of domestic electricity appliances, batteries and electric vehicles to help reducing the upcoming increasing gap between the demand and supply of energy is an emerging field of study. On a national level, demand response programs are already offered to residential energy users in order to reduce cost and the need of fossil fuel plants. More recently also on a local level such programs are set up in order to help the distribution system operator keep the distribution network stable. This research proposes a novel demand response program for residential energy users in the low voltage distribution network that gives them the opportunity to both react on uctuations on the national electricity market and help resolving local grid-related issues in the distribution network. A comprehensible pricing scheme is created that, based on the concept of a traffic light, offers different prices to the prosumers, re ecting the stability of the low voltage network. To test this program, heuristics are designed for the exible devices in a household in order to react on the varying prices. An IEEE European LV Test Feeder network with 21 households having own generation, smart appliances, batteries and electric vehicles is then simulated minutely for a complete day. In a computer study using the simulation's environment the steering approach is compared with a situation without management, thereby analyzing different penetrations of own generation, batteries, electric vehicles and air conditioners.
