PROJECT TITLE :
Utilization of Flexible Demand in a Virtual Power Plant Set-Up
High penetration levels from renewable energy sources in massive-scale power systems demand a high degree of flexibility within the transmission and distribution system. This paper presents a technique for utilization of flexible demand in the low-voltage distribution system using the thermal mass of a building to defer power consumption from electric area heating. The facility consumption for heating is controlled by an operational virtual power plant, which is sending a set point for requested power consumption to the building management system. An optimization downside is formulated such that the discrete dispatch of power from ten electric area heaters is following the power set purpose given constraints on the indoor comfort that is outlined by the users of the building. The controlling methodology has been implemented in an intelligent office building and used for demonstration of versatile demand within the low voltage network.
