Abstract:This thesis looks at the impact of different ways to control devices in a Dutch neighbourhood: an individual approach based on price steering and a community approach based on profile steering are evaluated. This study specifically looks at the impact on the grid load, self-consumption, costs and societal consequences. The used modelled neighbourhood consists of 17 houses and a smart charging parking lot. These houses can have a baseload, PV panels, Heat Pump (HP), Electric Vehicle (EV) charging station and a home battery. Three cases are researched: The base case does not use any control and investigates the impact of adding these devices to the houses. The realistic scenario looks at the impact of the different control algorithms when only 7 houses own an EMS, home battery and EV. The futuristic scenario researches the impact of different control methods when all houses have 100% penetration of all abovementioned devices. The impact on individual households is also shown to discern any discrepancies between households.
