Abstract

Conventional direct load‐shedding for achieving static voltage stability lacks considerations on both customer comfort and energy efficiency, resulting in higher cost and emission. A novel security‐based, optimal load‐shedding strategy considering customer comfort settings is presented in this paper. A temperature priority list method is used to model the virtual generator (VG) consisting of thermostatically controlled appliances (TCAs). To illustrate the control process and performance evaluation of the proposed load‐shedding scheme, a modified IEEE 6‐bus test system is used. Three heat, ventilation, and air‐conditioning (HVAC) groups are numerically simulated to respond to optimal load shedding signals. Reduced responsive load population, variations of temperature dead‐bands, and different outdoor temperature profiles are modeled to evaluate the capacity variations of the VG and its control performance. The results demonstrate that TCAs can provide satisfactory voltage stability.
