Today, the power grid is operated largely by controlling generation to match load.? As ever-greater amounts of intermittent renewable generation sources are added to the grid, it will become increasingly difficult to achieve the overall balance of generation and load with the current approach.? Active control of load offers a new capability to help manage the grid.? Aggregated dispatchable loads will be able to provide grid services well beyond traditional demand response.
These services can help compensate for the variability of some renewable generation sources.? Loads that participate in providing these services could realize a reduced cost of electricity.? The talk will go through some fundamentals of how power grids operate and describe how loads could be controlled to provide some of the same grid services that are currently performed by powerplants.? An example of how plug-in electric and hybrid vehicles could provide these services will be presented.
