Electricity Consumption Behaviors and Clustering of Distribution Grids in Terms of Demand Response

© 2022 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.Knowing of energy consumption behaviors and similarities between consumers becomes extremely important for electric power systems operators to apply green energy trends by ensuring the stability and flexibility of the grid. Especially in the modern power systems and the energy markets, consumer-based market structures must be implemented. Consumer types, energy needs, and demand behaviors of the distribution grid can affect cumulatively the demand behavior of the full electricity system. Thus, understanding the consumption behaviors and similarities among different distribution grid operator can provide a significant advantage in determining the types and applications of demand response activities in terms of the transmission grid. In this study, the consumption of distribution grids analyzes statistically according to the consumer types (like residential, commercial, industrial), and to identify the consumption similarities making clustering analysis. For this reason, first, the total consumption reflected on the transmission grid is examined periodically concerning the distribution grids. Second, we group distribution grids by consumption similarity using past real consumption data using a MATLAB application developed. A data-driven regional demand aggregation approach is shown together with the cluster analysis. Finally, the demand response potential got from distribution loads has been evaluated.

Electricity market modeling using stochastic and robust optimization
Yıldırım, Miray Hanım; Wilhelm Weber, Gerhard; Türker Bayrak, Özlem; Department of Scientific Computing (2015)
Sustainable development relying on sustainable and renewable energy systems is becoming one of the major policies of many countries. This forces the policy makers to establish many reforms and revolutions, which evolve electricity markets into a more competitive form. The competitive environment results in surging electricity demand and supply that brings in a critical challenge: uncertainty. In this thesis, the uncertainties with respect to prices and demand in the market are explored by using stochastic p...
Electricity consumption and economic growth nexus in Zimbabwe revisited: fresh evidence from Maki cointegration
Samu, Remember; Bekun, Festus Victor; Fahrioglu, Murat (2019-05-28)
This study explores the relationship between electricity consumption, real gross domestic product per capita and carbon dioxide emissions in Zimbabwe. To achieve this, the study set off by examining the stationarity properties of the variables under review with the Zivot-Andrews (1992) unit root test that accounts for a single structural break. Subsequently, Maki (2012) cointegration test, which accounts for multiple structural breaks, is applied for equilibrium relationship between the variables under revi...
Electricity load and price forecasting of Turkish electricity markets
Kalay, Oğuz; Karasözen, Bülent; Department of Financial Mathematics (2018)
Progress on the forecasting techniques of market clearing price (MCP) and system marginal price (SMP) conveys millions of dollars profit to the electricity generator corporations. Therefore, more accurate forecasting system on total electricity load (TEL) and market prices enhances profits of the market participants. System of the Turkish Electricity Market has three interdependent platforms; Day Ahead Market (DAM), Intra-Day Market (IDM) and Balancing Power Market (BPM). MCP and SMP are the most important ...
Energy efficiency and rebound effect for household gas consumption: evidence from Ankara
Yılmaz, Zehra İlknur; Sarı, Ramazan; Department of Earth System Science (2019)
Increasing energy demand and concerns about energy security and climate change have led to energy efficiency to become one of the important energy policy objectives in many countries. It is conceived that energy efficiency improvements will decrease energy consumption and CO2 emissions. However, actual efficiency savings are often less than projected savings because of consumer behavior. This concept is known as the rebound effect which is an important factor to be considered while estimating results of ene...
Electricity price forecasting using hybrid time series models
Taş, Büşra; Yozgatlıgil, Ceylan; Department of Statistics (2018)
Accurate forecasting of hourly electricity price is very important in a competitive market. Decision makers highly benefit from accurate forecasting. Because electricity cannot be stored, shocks to demand or supply affect the electricity prices. As a result, electricity prices show high volatility. Additionally, it may have multiple levels of seasonality. Therefore, forecasting with conventional methods is very difficult. In this study, hybrid models are constructed with Seasonal Autoregressive Integrated M...
