Abstract

The increased penetration of intermittent renewable generation has already resulted in spilling and it is projected that renewable energy curtailment level will continue to soar. This paper presents a framework to assess the flexibility of domestic thermal loads and Electric vehicles (EVs) charging load for power sink as a means to reduce wind energy curtailment during different times of a year. The objective of the framework is to jointly optimize the flexible loads to mitigate the curtailment thereby increasing the utilization of intermittent renewable generation. The proposed model is applied to the Finnish power system. The simulation results suggested that the proper activation of demand response (DR) is a feasible curtailment mitigation option but with an important caveat that potential subdued as the renewable penetration increases in the system.
