Enhanced Power System Responsiveness through Load Control

Ian Hiskens Professor University of Michigan, Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science
SHARE:

Responsive load control offers a particularly effective
approach to compensating for the variability inherent in large-scale
renewable generation, and mitigating the effects of generation and
transmission outages. Furthermore, as plug-in electric vehicles grow
in popularity, scheduling their charging load will become vitally
important to prevent local overloads, and to ensure optimal use of
generation resources. Fortunately expansive communications networks
and advances in distributed control algorithms facilitate precise,
non-disruptive forms of load control. The presentation will discuss a
range of control strategies, from distribution-level controls that
prevent localized overloads to games that arise in coordinating the
charging of large numbers of electric vehicles.
