GRID RESILIENCE 2015 - Security and vulnerabilities of the electrical system

The paper presents a demand side response application with thermostatic loads, aimed to support power system frequency stability according to ENTSO-E recommendations. Results of the application of the control strategy to a 2020 scenario of Sardinia are shown.

This paper considers a demand side response application for frequency control in agreement with suggestions proposed by the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E). The control strategy is designed for supporting primary frequency regulation through thermostatically controlled loads, such as domestic refrigerators and water heaters.

A realistic simulation study within the scenario of the Sardinian electric network, in a 2020 forecast horizon, is presented. Results show the advantages and drawbacks of the considered strategy.
