On integrating device level schedules into market based control
To deal with challenges introduced by the adaption of distributed energy resources, Demand Side Management methodologies are being developed to ensure the availability and reliability of our electricity supply in the future. The Power-Matcher and TRIANA are two examples of such management methodologies. As the strengths of the approaches complement each other, the two approaches are combined in this research by developing a novel bidding strategy. This strategy is unique in the sense that it incorporates a device specific planning when the device bidding function is determined. Simulations show that the combination is capable of following a planning while performing real-time balancing to deal with prediction errors. It is shown that following a planning mitigates the effect of exploiting flexibility on undesired periods. In the use-case simulations, this results in a peak reduction of around 25%.
