Demand Response in Smart Grid

Speaker:  Abhishek Roy – San Francisco, United States
Topic(s):  Information Systems, Search, Information Retrieval, Database Systems, Data Mining, Data Science


Smart grids are conceived of as electric power grids, capable of delivering electricity in a controlled,smart way from energy generator to active consumers. Demand response (DR), by promoting the interaction and responsiveness of the customers, offers a broad range of potential benefits on system operation, expansion and market efficiency. Moreover, by improving the reliability of the power system and, in the long term, lowering peak demand, DR reduces overall plant and capital cost investments.Thus, it also postpones the need for network upgrades. In this lecture we discuss the DR potentials and benefits in smart grids. Innovative enabling technologies and systems, such as smart meters, energy controllers, communication systems, decisive to facilitate the coordination of efficiency and DR in a smart grid, will be discussed with reference to real case studies in Korea.
