Coordinated Scheduling, Dispatch and Control of Demand Response, Distributed Generation and Storage Resources
- Written by Farrokh Albuyeh
Emerging distributed and renewable sources of energy present challenges in operating power systems. At the distribution level, generalizing the functional model for balancing areas and adapting it to lower hierarchical levels of the distribution grid can address some of these challenges. Ubiquitous and inexpensive sensing, control and communication technologies allow the coordinated scheduling, dispatch and control of demand response, distributed energy resources and storage assets to address energy balance and phase balance issues in the distribution grid.
