Introduction to Demand Response Scheduling By Stochastic SCUC Project:
Many independent system operators have designed programs to utilize the services provided by the demand response. Demand responses are provides with the demand response providers which manages the customer responses. In this we will look into a stochastic model which utilizes the reserves provided by the demand response in the markets.
Brief on Demand response scheduling:
We find two types of demand response programs they are time based demand response programs and incentive based demand response programs. Time based demand response programs are designed for independent system operators which contain the programs like time of use tariffs, critical peak pricing and real time pricing.
Whereas the incentive based programs have a market based structure and can be offered in both retail and whole sale markets. Most of the incentive base programs have its own goal of operation and san over long term, midterm and short term. A stochastic mixed integer programming model is suggested in which the first stage involves a network constrained unit and the second stage involves security system scenarios.
Advantages and Drawbacks in the existing system:
The demand response providers participate in the electricity markets which act as a medium between the retail consumers and independent system operators. The demand response programs offer aggregate response in the independent system operators. Many independent system operators have the requirement of minimum curtailment level but the demand response programs are lagging this. The demand response programs don’t provide security to the system.
