In the residential sector, natural gas has been the main consumed energy resource for surface heating (SH) and domestic hot water (DHW) during cold seasons, and substituting this energy carrier with electricity from renewable resources imposes challenges not only in economic but also technical terms. Due to the intermittent nature of renewable...

End – consumers have become more active in the effort to achieve secure operation of the electricity grid. Demand response offers a set of solutions allowing consumers to achieve normalised load profiles and increase the balance between energy generation and consumption. Storage technologies and renewable energy sources integrated in microgrid...

Traditionally, the transmission network transported electricity over extended distances from local large scale electricity generation plants to distribution networks that transported electricity to end consumers (Ekanayake, 2012). In order to ensure that such a system remains operational, a Distribution System Operator (DSO) maintains, operates...

With increased awareness of anthropogenic emissions, industries and sectors worldwide are changing rapidly. One of those sectors is the transport sector which has seen immense change with the increase of electric vehicles in recent years. Although these electric vehicles reduce emissions and are a welcoming sign of change, they greatly increase...

Nowadays, by using the new ICT technologies the functional efficiency of the Smart Grid is increased but at the same time leads to a more vulnerable system and makes the Smart Grid a potential target for cyber-attacks. In fact, cyber-attacks are becoming one of the most serious threats in critical infrastructures. More than 80% of energy...

The growth of electricity generated by renewables increases the intermittency of the Dutch electricity production. To deal with this, the Dutch power system requires a higher amount of flexibility in the future. Demand response with heat pumps is one of the options with a high potential to provide flexibility, because it offers the potential to...

Jorna, Nienke (author)
Renewable energy sources like wind and solar, are intermittent, which means demand will not always match supply causing volatile and sometimes even negative electricity prices. For power companies it will be valuable to invest in technologies that can respond to those prices, which will result in an increasing flexibility of demand. However, to...

Currently in the energy system of the Netherlands, lower level consumer demand flexibility is rather obsolete due to sufficient capacity limits of the distribution network and supply of capacity mechanisms by large industrial actors. However, in the upcoming 10- 20 years, the power system is in transition to become decentralised with a higher...

Virtual Power Plants can aggregate and dispatch distributed energy sources (DER) to gain revenue in the Day-Ahead market, however as a Balancing Responsible Party they can risk imbalance cost due to deviations between the Day-Ahead forecast and actual production of their renewable energy portfolio. This study analyses the ability of industrial...

In this thesis the potential of demand response among households in The Netherlands is studied. The methodology is based on the conceptual design of an Agent-Based Model for the adoption of domestic demand response by households. From this model the subsequent flexibility in the electricity system will be brought forward.<br/><br/>A review of...
